When I came to Alberta to finally meet them for the first time, Tracie asked me to design a shawl inspired by her sister, so I did! And I or course was so creative with the name… I just named it Jodi.
Jodi is a crescent shaped shawl worked in DK yarn with beautiful faded lines and a garter stitch based lace pattern. Being worked in a heavier weight, it grows so so quickly you will barely notice even making it! Choose 3 colors in a gradient scale for a subtle faded effect like my sample, or 3 different bold ones for a bolder look.
This shawl is worked from the centre top down. Stitches are increased at each side on every other row to give it its characteristic crescent shape. The stripe sequence in this design make the colors change progressively, almost like a gradient.
