This lace shawl features two skeins of Undercover Otter’s Eventide, a fingering weight yarn with a smooth blend of merino, yak, and silk. Yarn over eyelets decorate the semi-circular shape with a lightning bolt motif. I-cord edges frame the wingspan and a garter stitch border finishes the graphic design with sharp short row points. Each Eventide colorway is dyed on a neutral heathered base, which gives the yarn rich depth and dimension. The silk fibers create a super flowy fabric and it also soaks up the dye, producing bold saturated colorways. Complete this statement shawl with a tassel on each wingtip.
