Shine on Shawl
Short Description: Pick two colours of your favourite fingering weight yarn and lose yourself in a deceptively simple knit. Shine On Shawl combines a clean lace stitch with a complex-looking, but easy to work, diamond mosaic pattern. The graphic diamond motif is created with slipped stitches, and only one colour is ever worked at one time – no stranding! Simple increases form a shallow triangle shawl, a shape as classic and timeless as the mellow guitar riffs of Pink Floyd’s Shine On You Crazy Diamond which played through my mind as I knit. Choose between two sizes, small and large, and coordinate your shawl with the other accessories in the Shine On collection.
