If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

Silky smooth and mercury quick, this fluid shawl swirls with color.

Quicksilver is worked flat from tip to edge, with garter stitch stripes and a lace mesh that knits up in the blink of an eye.

Wedges of the lace fan between the striped sections, lending the shawl a lovely slanted shape.

Take your pick of shades from Sun Valley Fibers M/C/S (Merino/Cashmere/Silk blend) fingering.
