Red Heart recently came out with a new collection of striping yarn. Super Saver Stripes, Super Saver Ombre and With Love Stripes are a wonderful addition to the Red Heart collection. For each of these yarns you will find a selection of new FREE patterns on Red Heart’s website. Today I want to share my newest shawl pattern featuring With Love Stripes.

Red Heart Super Saver StripesOne of the benefits of these new yarns is that they have stripes built in. When looking at the finished shawl many would assume that there are going to be a lot of ends to weave in but in reality the yarn does all of the color changes. With six color options it was hard to choose what color I wanted but I finally narrowed it down.Red Heart Super Saver Ombre Yarn

This pattern is designed with a garter stitch boarder. While you are working through the project you will see how the boarder forms. As you work to get back down the other side to finish your shawl you will need to add the garter stitch boarder and bind off. I used this technique so that both sides of the shawl would match.
