Burnished Night is a square hap in two sizes. It is worked in the round beginning in the centre, with diagonal increases radiating out to the four corners. These increases divide the four panels – one Garter Stitch, one lace and two simple Stocking Stitch.

This shawl is worked at a loose gauge to maximize drape and make the most of the yarn’s yardage.
