  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    If you have previously purchased the Daybreak shawl pattern, you should be able to find this Purlbreak version as a free PDF update in your Ravelry library.

    If you purchase Purlbreak as a new pattern, you will also receive the original Daybreak pattern in stockinette stitch, but only in English. If you require Daybreak in another language, please buy the Daybreak pattern instead. Purlbreak is currently only available in English.

    Purlbreak is a garter stitch version of the popular Daybreak shawl pattern released in 2009. Purlbreak was modified to have a stretchier wingspan edge while maintaining the classic Daybreak shape and geometric details. The entire fabric is knit top-down in garter stitch with slip stitch details. Choose a main color and three contrast colors that fade from light to dark to knit this graphic semi-circular shawl.
