The colours and lace stitches of the Aetobatus Shawl undulate and flow effortless together in this watery themed accessory.


This shawl is designed specifically to show off how colours can merge and blend seamlessly in a way that is often unique to hand dyed gradient sock blanks. Just one double stranded sock blank is needed to complete this project. If you wish you can use a regular skein of fingering weight yarn instead. Even though this shawl is designed with gradient sock blanks in mind it will be just as beautiful in a speckled, semisolid or solid coloured yarn.


Every row of this pattern is fully charted so few written instructions are needed. Video links are also included in the pattern or they can be watched through the links below:
