This is the fifth and final shawl in our WPKnits 2015 Mystery Shawl Club.

Fading from light to dark, this five color, crescent style shawl in lovely fingering weight yarn combines, accent stripes, simple bands of lace and a striking lace border. It is worked top down with a knitted on border. Beading is optional, but offers a great introduction to using beads and adds a sparkle to your finished work.

The pattern is fully charted and written.
