This shawl was created to be your favorite shawl pattern since it is made from relaxing garter stitch with engaging eyelet rows and endless color possibilities. It would be gorgeous knit up in one color, but you can just as easily use 20! The designer, Andrea Mowry, has extended the color melt sections for an even more cohesive fade, with easy instructions to add as many fade sections as you would like! The shawl is light weight and perfect year round when knit up in fingering weight yarn, but don’t let that stop you from knitting it up in any yarn weight you prefer to the size of your choosing!  



The possibilities are endless! This shawl can be knit using however many colors you want, with whatever yarn weight fits your fancy, to the size that fits you best! Free your fade, and make it your own with this adaptable pattern.

Kit includes pattern and selected yarn.

Please wash all of your skeins prior to starting your project to prevent color bleeding in the finished garment.
