To make a shawl of many different colors use:
1 oz / 120 yd rainbow dyed
& 4—1 oz / 120 yd of 2-4 solid colors
You can make it with less color variation, but it is best to
have an odd number of yarns.
Needles: US Size 3, 32-48 inches.
Gauge: 6-7 stitches per inch.
Other Stuff You Will Need: down time, 2 stitch markers, daring color curiosity-try different colors together, knit a few rows … if you don’t like it, rip it out and try another color...experiment boldly, that is where the magic lives.
