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.

Nightshift shawl knit in 1 ball each Akari #5 & #7.
