Trecolori Shawl

The grey is here to stay for a few months, but we can combat the blahs with comfort and color.

Help! What colors would you choose?

Trecolori is available for purchase on the Happy Fuzzy Yarn website or on Ravelry.

    I hope to find time very soon to cast on mine — in Amazonite, Seaglass, and Granite.

      Oh yes! That’s a fantastic combination!

    Moss on Stone! Plus a green semi-solid or something like Bald Eagle. Maybe those colors are more in my wheelhouse. Hmmm.

      No, I like it. I might do the Moss in Stone with Emerald and Peppercorn. The sweet torture of possibility.
