This modern shawl’s clean geometry is highlighted by transparent striping. Staccato and Silk Cloud (or Twig and Silk Cloud in Shibui Re-Mix) are paired in complementary colorways, providing a contrast between solid and ethereal. Its versatile triangular shape provides a variety of styling options--drape it across the shoulders for a traditional look, or wrap closely around the neck for a scarf-like approach.

Currently this pattern is not available in digital format.

The original pattern (in 2012) called for larger stripes. Due to gauge inconsistencies, some people using this pattern were running out of Silk Cloud. If you have an older pattern be sure to do a gauge swatch to make sure you will not run out of yarn. If your swatch is larger than the recommended gauge, you may run out of yarn. This pattern has been re-written since then.
