Trick of the Light is a play on bright and dark, light and shadow, contrasts and opposites.
This crescent-shaped shawl is knit in three colors of fingering-weight yarn. Choose colors with a good amount of contrast, such as two light and one dark, or vice versa. Pick neutrals with one color pop for an edgy, graphic shawl or three colors in the same color family for a tonal look. Add a little twinkle to your shawl with (optional) beads!
The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Instructions for the lace pattern is given in both written and charted formats. The rest of the pattern — garter stitch, stripes, and bobbles — is given only as written instructions.
This shawl pattern was originally released as a mystery knit-along in April 2020.
