CREATIVE FLOWshawl

This shawl is all about creative outlet and mindless knitting. Even though it might look like an intricate and difficult knit, CREATIVE FLOW is quite the opposite. The small and easy to remember stitch patterns make this project very rhythmic and relaxing.

The pattern contains both the complete instructions to recreate the shown sample and a recipe how to pick and mix the different stitch patterns to create your own unique version of this shawl. Use as many colors as you like or make a monochrome version - there really are no limits to this project.

CREATIVE FLOW is worked from the top down, so that you can easily change the size to your preferences as you go. There are no rules here, just pure knitting fun!
