Here is the anticipated Embrace the Storm Shawl. “Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path.” – Paulo Coelho. This triangular shawl is worked with three colors that fade into each other at each transition point. Each color uses a different stitch pattern, starting with linen stitch, moving into a simple lace pattern, and followed up by a scallop pattern to represent storm clouds. The bottom border features a simple fan like lace with optional beads.
This pattern uses three different colors in sport weight of 328 yards each. Please make sure to use skeins with a minimum of 328 yards, as you will use almost all of the yardage.
