A super-sized shawl is a perfect accessory to rock this freezing winter in style.

Wrap it around your neck and keep warm on your trips out into the cold, or wrap it around your shoulders to stay cozy and warm inside.

Ewe Rock is knit top-down in one-color and two-color brioche and garter stitch in a stunning four-color fade.

The tassels accentuate the star shape, but are of course entirely optional.

Ewe Rock is designed for and with Yarn Pimp Yarn, the wonderfully soft hand-dyed fingering weight single-ply of one very special yarn store, Do Ewe Knit? (in Westfield, New Jersey, USA).

Use a combination of semisolids and speckled yarn in four colors to create your personal fade. When choosing colors, make sure that each skein you chose picks up some of the colors of the previous skein. This will give you a soft and smooth fade.
