Prayer Shawl

This shawl is made from an ombre Red Heart yarn called "Monet,"  so aptly named for the color mix in many of this impressionist artist's work.  It is one of my favorite color combinations, and  I picked up the sage and grape colors in it to have a few contrasting stripes.

I often adapt a pattern to my own ideas of color combinations, sometimes out of necessity, when I don't have enough yarn.  For you fellow hookers, do you stay true to the pattern or put in your own twist?

Beautiful job Melissa :). I've followed patterns, but most often use them as a guide and make my own alterations.
Stay inspired!
