Fluttery shawl of cephalopod love! Inspired by a photo of a semi-translucent vampire squid.

Eight exaggerated points, three color ombre-transition, slight shaping to accent the curved stripes between colors.

Worked from the center out, increasing to a full and swingin’ edge. Light airy yarn makes this a lovely all-season shawl.

The yardage listed is an approximate total yardage. I will post a color-by-color breakdown soon when I am done re-knitting!
