Broad bands of gradient color dance with moody gray across this asymmetrical triangular shawl, creating soft transitions between mystery and mirth.

The narrow stripes are a sinuously woven stitch that sends its ripples out through the wider garter stripes.

Thief is knit in a magical merino-cashmere-silk blend, Ultraluxe Light by Sunshine Yarns; Joker is knit in Sunshine Yarns’ playful Sock Gradient Kit.
