Daylight Shawl is a lofty triangular shawl that brings four different colors together and combines them using beautiful texture and light slipped stitch elements to create airy goodness to wrap yourself in.

Its textures use different slip stitch techniques as well as relaxing moss stitch. I-cord bind off brings a nice finish to this wonderfully light and drapey shawl that surely will brighten up your day.

Feel free to play with colors or work with natural tones, you won’t be disappointed by their interactions within the structures and patterns. Or why not dive for some left overs to use as main colors, because they don’t need as much yarn. Get creative and play with some colors to compose your very own lifter-of-spirits.
