Lightning Ray is addictive. This big shawl is easy to remember, quick to work up, and very large. While the sample uses a double-stranded yarn to add dimensional effect created with 2 different shades, the directional effect is the same with a single strand of lace weight or fine fingering weight. It’s a “choose your own adventure” style of pattern.

In the LINEAR collection, this pattern fits a directional, steady growth, blank canvas style. Whether in solid, heathered, semi-solid or double-stranded, you’ll love wearing yours.
