There is something inherently romantic in the imagery of an early morning fog that slowly rolls over the countryside and then just as slowly dissipates, or evanesces, as the day wakes up and gets under way. Evanesce is a crescent-shaped shawl that echoes this dissipation in the seven panels that make it up. They gradually decrease in width as the shawl knits on, and some use short rows that fade in from one end while others fade out.

Evanesce’s panels feature two differently textured slipped-stitch patterns which are alternated between short bands of garter stitch. The patterns are easy to memorize, knit up quickly, and work as well for variegated and speckled yarns as they do for tonal.

This pattern is available in two sizes. To minimize confusion as well as the number of pages in the document, the pattern has been split into two separate files.
