loops & threads® joy dk™ geometric knit shawl

Bold stripes and bright colors combine in this gorgeous shawl that’s sure to stand out! We love the on-trend mix of mint, teal and pale gray, but Joy DK™ yarn comes in lots of lovely colors. Choose your favorite and make this piece your own!
Step 1
Project Note: The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is
   -  2 - Loops & Threads® Joy DK™ Solid Yarn – Lagoon,
   -  2 - Loops & Threads® Joy DK™ Solid Yarn – Mint, and
