Powdersnow is an elegant crescent shaped shawl that combines different textures resulting in a beautiful item to highlight your daily wardrobe.

The body slip-stitch pattern creates a lovely textured fabric. It is followed by a wavy lattice-like cabled pattern which will then smoothly transform into a ribbed border.

It is worked in one piece top-down from the centre out.

The combination of the different textured stitches reminds me of the textures the wind creates on the surface of freshly fallen powdery snow.

The pattern contains fully written out as well as charted instructions.

I hope you’ll enjoy the pattern!
