Daybreak is a semicircular shawl, featuring clear graphic stripes that echo a rising sun. The generous wingspan allows the fabric to drape comfortably around your shoulders and neck. There is plenty of room to play with color in the three sections of this arched shawl.

Purlbreak is a garter stitch variation of Daybreak that was released as a free pattern update. You will receive both Daybreak and Purlbreak if you purchase this pattern.
