Have a few skeins of fingering-weight yarn that need something to do for the summer? Bring two or a few colors together to play in Summer Camp, an easy-to-memorize and easy-to-modify shawl that makes an effortless, low-key knit. It’s perfect for pairing a crazy variegated or a speckled colorway with a coordinating solid, or for using leftovers or a gradient set. The shawl is worked sideways with a knitted-on edging, and the simple instructions mean you can knit one up from wherever your summer days take you.
Resizing is easy - just add stripes! (The final scallop directions will work as written as long as you increase by full stripes.)
