The Big Easy

This pattern is available to purchase on Ravelry.

By Melanie Berg

Everything about this shawl is meant to be easy, from the effortless garter stitch to the simple yet eye - catching nupp stripes.

The uncomplicated design showcases a gorgeous new yarn, Balayage, which I developed in collaboration with a local yarn company, Pascuali Filati Naturali. I created the color palette, and together we decided on weight, fiber content, and spin.

The result is a stunning yarn with a fantastic feel that’s perfect for colorwork shawls, sweaters, and accessories!
