Sagitta is an asymmetric shawl with alternating lace and garter stitch panels designed to showcase the beauty of gradient set of mini-skeins against a single skein of a contrasting color. The cables in the garter stitch sections flow out of the lace pattern and are created with traveling slipped stitches worked over a striped backdrop.

The shawl is worked from side to side, increases along one edge and decreases along the other create the asymmetric triangular shape.

Only one color is worked at a time, the cable pattern is created by slipping the contrasting color stitches over the main color rows.

Yardage needed may change based on your yarn and gauge. A yarn percentage chart is included help you determine if you have enough yarn to complete the shawl.

Modifications are included for working the shawl with a 5 color gradient set.
