Switchback Shawl Kit
The Switchback shawl by Aimee Alexander is designed to make use of the color transitions of Polka Dot Sheep Striata yarns with directional changes. This modular technique creates a sense of movement of color throughout as if you are heading up a mountain road and down the other side. Switchback is a simple-to-knit multi-directional shawl that can easily be customized to your preferred width or length.
