Short Description: Earthshine is a substantial shawl-cowl hybrid designed for Anzula’s glittering new yarn, Lucero. Earthshine begins as a semi-circular shawl, then is joined to work in the round to create a cowl that mimics the look of a big, squishy shawl wrapped around the shoulders. The stripe pattern is simple, with ridges of Garter Stitch against a field of Stockinette that reverses colors halfway through. In subtle neutrals or bold brights, Earthshine is a stunning way to bring a little sparkle to your life!
