This bright and beautiful shawl is a simple beginner pattern that works up with only 1 skein of yarn.
Sometimes, when a yarn is full of color and texture a simple pattern works best. I decided to make this easy triangle pattern based on the traditional granny square. It’s a simple pick up and go project with an easy to remember repeat of rows.
This yarn is absolutely beautiful. There is no wrong color choice because they are all absolutely beautiful. This shawl is named after the colorful Rainbow Mountains in Peru, where this yarn is produced.
