Every yarn needs a perfect project to be paired with it... I got the three skeins of Coopknits' Socks Yeah! just over a year ago with some colourwork project in mind and then let it sit for a while waiting its turn and couldn't have been happier with the shawl they became.

Can there ever be too many stripes? Pick three skeins in your favourite colours and stripe away to your heart’s content on this triangular garter stitch shawl. Never Enough Stripes begins at a point and is shaped gently as rows progress. The simple slip-stitch pattern breaks up the garter ground, blending the stripes together, while the colour change is designed to encourage you to do a few more rows. Then a few more. Because, truly, there are never enough stripes.
