Who loves shawls?
I just can’t stop designing and creating them! But, honestly, though I love making shawls, I seldom wear them. Most of the shawls I made or will make end up as gifts to friends and loved ones who appreciate handmade items!
The Evanesce Shawl is my new shawl design. This pattern is collaborative project with Shelly from Daisy Stitch Co. This is the second time I worked with her. The first one was about this time last year! I designed a beanie and a cowl set — The Broadway Slouchy Beanie and The Broadway Cowl. Like the first collaboration, Shelly graciously provided the yarns I used to make The Evanesce Shawl!
When it comes to shawls, I always go for fingering weight yarns. So, for this design, I used Daisy Stitch Co Fibers in Golden Moss Speckle Color Palette in fingering weight base. I chose the colors Moss, Golden Moss Speckle, Golden Hour. These yarns are absolutely gorgeous! I love the drapes and the softness too!
I used 3 hanks (3 colors) but you can definitely make this shawl in one color or a gradient yarn cake. The possibilities are endless. You can take a look at my tester’s color choices for inspirations! You can find them at the bottom part of this post.
Here’s another exciting news! When you buy yarns from Daisy Stitch Co, you’ll get 20% off from your total purchase using the coupon code “stringsandcuddles“. This offer is valid until November 30! You can create your own kit! What are you waiting for? Get your own kit and start making your The Evanesce Shawl!
If you knew me, I love working with gradient yarns! One cake gradient yarns are my go-to yarns for shawls.
The shades of the yarns I received from Daisy Stitch Co. remind me of the Fall leaves. The fading effect of the yarns is comparable to what happens to the leaves during the Fall. The colors are dyeing/drying up! This is where I got the name for the pattern – Evanesce! The colors are gradually dissipating!
I love the intricate design of this shawl! I have a bit of trial and errors, frogging (ripping off) my work just to figure out the best way to showcase the lacy design of this pattern.
The pattern may look so complicated and confusing but I assure you that once you memorize the 3 repeat rows, you’ll find that this pattern is actually easy and a quick project!
To help you understand the pattern much better, I have also included some photos and a chart that you could follow. I believe that these photos and chart are helpful tools as your guide in finishing this project.
I am just so delighted to share this pattern so let’s get down to the pattern!
