Genesis is a classic boomerang-shaped shawl that starts with a tiny cast on at one corner, and proceeds through 24 colors in squishy garter stitch. It ends with a faux cable (no cable needle needed) that is so easy and fun to work!

 Tip: My dear knitter, this pattern gives detailed and specific directions for how to work this shawl.  However, you can’t mess this up.  Please feel free to change colors whenever you want, and if you run out of one color, go to another one! Have fun with it and don’t get too caught up in the numbers.
