Skystorm is an asymmetric top-down shawl knit in garter stitch with stockinette stitch texture stripes. Three colors fade together as eyelet increases shape the fabric. Choose between two shapes for this pattern, a smooth wave with straight edges or a version with a wavy border. I-cord edges frame the shawl for a simple elegant accessory that’s easy to knit.

Straight Border (Wavy Border)

There are two shape variations to this pattern.

The first Straight Border option has more of an overall wave shape with a curved wingspan edge and a simple straight border.
