Select five colors of fingering weight yarn and enjoy a collage of textures and eyelet stitch patterns. The various eyelet stitch patterns catch the glittering light and yield a lovely lightweight fabric with effortless drape. Each section is simple to knit with relaxing rows of knits and purls. Begin with lightest color at the top center of the shawl and fade your colors together with smooth stripes that help blend the colors. The faded color transitions and textural variety make this project addicting and mesmerizing to knit. The final border is knit sideways with the darkest color along with little eyelet stripes from the other four colors. This snowscape of stitches is sure to keep you entertained and comforted throughout the Hiberknitting season.
Finished Measurements 86″ / 218cm wingspan length, 29″ / 74cm from CO to BO edge measured along the center of the shawl. Measurements taken after blocking.
