If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

Note: Purple Bazil has been discontinued as a Unicorn Tail, but Dutchess is a great substitute.

Rainbows break through a cloud-gray background in Solaris, an asymmetrical triangle shawl drizzled with eyelet rows.

Short row sections knit in a contrast color create smaller triangles inside the shawl, and the lower border is streaked with stripes and bobbles.

The yarn is Tosh Merino Light by Madelinetosh, a stoney gray for the main body with the subtle rainbows of Unicorn Tails as the accent.

„Paris Cobblestone“ has been exclusively dyed in a collaboration between L’Oisive Thé Paris, Madelinetosh and Melanie, and can best be described as „grey with a touch of yellow“.
