An oversized shawl is one of our favorite things. Getting lost in the soft comfort of the yarn and delicious colors reminds us of a nostalgic sweet treat. The aptly named Cotton Candy Shawl is wonderfully fun to make. Simple garter stitch allows you to focus on the modular construction and gorgeous Donnina yarn. The bright shades and color blocking mean you can wear this beauty year-round.

PATTERN NOTES This shawl is is knit modularly, beginning with a mitered square. Stitches are then picked up along the side of the square for each wing of the shawl. Each wing is decreased at a different rate. Finally, stitches are picked up along the side and bottom for a contrast-color edging. A diagram is included to help you visualize the construction.
