I like to think of the Eventide Shawl as featuring a few unexpected and exciting elements. Knit in DK weight yarn rather than the popular fingering weight we’re so used to for shawls, it’s a heavier weight, which makes it extremely cushy and lush wrapped around your shoulders. It also features lots of lacey cables, a combination that I’m completely enamored with these days. Cushy cables and light as air lace, what a neat pairing! And lastly, the construction of the shawl includes a couple of twists which result in a lovely elongated crescent shape. I hope you enjoy knitting my new favourite shawl!
