Painted brick Shawl by Stephen West kits available here!
Painting Bricks is a splashy semi-circular shawl. Easy garter stitch is combined with stockinette stitch stripes and slipped stitches for an exciting new Westknits shawl project. Two skeins of the main color are combined with contrast colors in West Wool Bicycle. You can add as many contrast colors as you like to paint the bricks with your leftover color pops.
