This is a pattern that’s been on my queue for a long time, since Mina released the Minilicious pattern collection, and I’ve also had the minis for a long time. I had a very clear idea of this grey-based shawl with super bright colour wedges and it came out exactly how I hoped.

The pattern is a very clever construction with short rows which despite being garter stitch, means it keeps your interest throughout, and it’s also fairly easy to make sure you use the maximum of each colour, which I did (no leftovers!).

The long wing-shape of the shawl makes it really easy to wear, and it’s fairly light while still being squishy from the garter stitch.
