32” circular in size US 7 4.5mm

This semi-circular shawl is worked with two strands of Finch held together in order to play with the shades of darkening grays, and to create a worsted weight shawl (which is missing from my own wardrobe). Since two strands are held together while knitting, one strand is dropped and another strand in a darker shade is then
introduced creating a smooth gradation of colors. The lace pattern is incredibly simple and makes the worsted weight shawl light and airy. This would be a perfect first venture into knitting lace with a simple chart.
