Kompeito

The bright speckles running through this yarn make it ideal for a drop stitch pattern to add texture to the fantastic colours.
This shawl starts at one tip and works across to the other tip using a series of increases and decreases.
It’s enhanced by a series of short row wedges along the back, and includes optional armholes.
