Norwood Park combines color blocking with a unique, asymmetrical, “V” shape. Lightweight yarn and tapered ends make it light enough for spring weather, even when wrapped around. The beginner friendly pattern uses an unconventional decrease, which is not only easier to do, but also helps to avoid extra bulk along the edges.
Sample is shown in two different handspun yarns.
