The Big Easy 

by Melanie Berg

Relax and enjoy the knit! Everything about this shawl is meant to be easy, from the effortless garter stitch to the simple yet eye-catching nupp stripes.

The uncomplicated design showcases a gorgeous new yarn, Balayage, a yarn developed in collaboration between Melanie and Pascuali Filati Naturali. Melanie created the color palette, and together they designed the perfect balance of fiber, weight, and spin structure. The result is a stunning yarn with a fantastic feel that’s perfect for colorwork shawls, sweaters, and accessories!
