Butterflies, dragonflies, and damselflies, the kaleidoscope of these little messengers of summer adorning the shawl will keep you cozied up during chilly days! An authentic stitch pattern is created using exaggerated slip-stitch technique that is enhanced with the use of two different stitch textures. Alternating striping sequence between solid and gradient hand-spun yarns transforms this design into a fun and engaging knit, while a compressed depth and wide wingspan allows for it to be styled with ease!

This shawl pattern was designed in collaboration with Do Ewe Knit yarn store in Westfield, NJ to celebrate their 10 year anniversary!
