The Midwinter Mist shawl is inspired by the frozen mists over the fields on crisp winter mornings. This shawl using fingering weight yarn held together with mohair is perfect for wrapping up warm during the cold spells. The shawl has a simple triangular construction fading from one colour to the next with cosy garter stitch and a simple lace pattern.

Charts are included for the lace sections in addition to written line by line instructions.
