TropicAnna is a large crescent shaped which combines an easy lace pattern with stripes of ribbed stitches.

I have had this green yarn in my stash since last summer, having no idea how to combine it with other colors. Couldn’t even imagine to wear a green shawl! Bringing this tropical green together with mixed magentas makes it so powerful. Actually I feel empowered by these colors when wearing the shawl on my shoulders!

Pattern is relaxing and easy to memorize - a perfect knit for your holidays!

TropicAnna is made of 3 complete skeins of fingering weight yarn, I added two more colors (mini skeins or leftovers): using a color spectrum that reminds on a tropical breeze.

But feel free to use any other color combination, making sure that there is a bold contrast between the body (C1) and the edge color (C4) - find your individual version!

Repetitive increases and decreases are giving the shawl it’s unique shape and you are giving it’s unique color stripes - I am sure, you will love it!
