Rainbow Brick has got to be one of the best desserts. When you bite into the cake, you get these gorgeous pops of color, and the taste is oh-so decadently sweet. This shawl reminds us of the Rainbow Brick cake in the best of ways; pops of lovely colors, a sweet shape, and a fun pattern to work while knitting.

This shawl is worked flat on the bias. Two stitches are cast on for the point, and stitches are gradually increased. In this pattern all slipped stitches are worked purlwise with yarn in back on RS rows and purlwise with yarn in front on WS rows.
When working in Slip Stitch pattern, color changes occur every two rows. Do not break yarn at each color change. Instead, twist the strands of yarn around one another every RS row.
