Mothwings is a sweeping shawl that blends five colorways in a fade that radiates in several directions. An overall, simple slip-and-Garter pattern crosses the fade, creating a deeply textured, woven appearance. Mothwings is big, light and lovely, and would look awesome in either dramatic or ethereal colors.

Ritual Dyes kits are available here at 9 AM PST on 8/18!

Luscious yarn from Ritual Dyes makes it glow. I’ve partnered with Rachel of Ritual Dyes who is debuting her new yarn base, PIXIE! PIXIE is a lustrous high-twist single of 70% Merino and 30% silk. It has 438 yards to 100 grams, and this big shawl uses it all!

If you are using different yarn, note that this project uses all of five skeins of 430+ yards.
