We’ve updated Eskra to version 2.0 to incorporate colour change options, especially suited for our new Eskra Lace yarn kits!

Hues in a decadent gradient are like a balm to the winter blues. Add in a little texture, a bit of skill-building, and a familiar shape, and you have the makings of a shawl that brings delight from beginning to wearing.

This shawl is worked from side to side, increasing only one stitch every right-side row. Note: it might feel weird binding off slipped
stitches in the final row, but just go slowly, taking care to knit into each slipped stitch. The stitch patterns are all written (see Stitches
Used) and charted (p 4) for your preference.
