Aurora Blue captures all the gorgeous variations of vibrant blue found in the semi-double flowers of this type of delphinium. This design is knit sideways on the bias, making a shallow and asymmetrical triangle, perfect for wearing as an elegant scarf. The combination of garter stitch in a variegated hand-dyed yarn and simple lace makes it a perfect choice to get the best of both worlds.
The pattern contains both fully written out as well as charted instructions for the lace section.

Make the Aurora Blue shawl larger by adding more repeats of the garter stitch and/or by working more repeats in the lace section. As a result, this will, of course, increase the amount of yarn needed.
