It’s a brand new day!
The beautiful yarn from Twisted Fiber Art reminded me of a sunrise, how each day is a chance to start over and rise again. This was especially true of Twisted Fiber Art, they had a fire in their building and when through a lot of changes to rise and start again.

Note about yardage and substitutions
This pattern is designed to show off the whole skein of Twisted Fiber Art Gradient yarn. I used all but the last few meters.
They have a generous yardage of 420m/470 yards per 100g, please check that the yarn you use has enough yardage or you might run short.
Options if your yardage is less:
1) Use 2 contract colours in the Garter Bands and not the main colour.
2) Shorten the eyelet section and do 5 eyelet rows instead of 6 (this will change your stitch count)
3) Use your CC for the last garter band, eyelet row and bind off
4) Use 2 skeins of MC

Gauge
Gauge is not critical in shawl knitting but it will affect the overall finished size of your shawl and yarn usage.
