Twilight & Mist Shawl is a lightweight, lofty and soft accessory in a classic rectangular shape. The pattern features two simple reversible eyelet and lace stitch patterns that create an equally beautiful fabric on both sides of the shawl.

It is knit sideways, allowing you to change colours of the yarn as you progress, making it a perfect pattern for a gradient yarn to show it off to its best advantage. The cast-on and bind-off edges of this shawl can be blocked either straight or in a pointy pattern, giving your shawl the new look after every wash and blocking.
