My version of Nightshift Shawl. I used 1 ball each
Akari #5 & #7. The original shawl is knit
from the cast on few stitches to the other end. With the Akari, I knew the striping would get
narrower and narrower but I wanted more color blocking. So I worked until top edge was 36" wide
then I decreased instead of increasing until back to the original number of stitches. Looks
like sand and surf. I love how soft and cozy the yarn is. Probably could use a better picture as
sun came out when I was trying to shoot it. Pattern is
$7, yarn is $40 a ball.

MarinJa Knits' Papillion pattern is $14. and has many variations for butterfly and
moth styles. A fun knit this summer, but does involve a lot of counting...don't think it is perfect but it does not seem to matter!
