Pattern Description:

Mayur, meaning "peacock" in Sanskrit, was inspired by my desire to create a two color shawl with an ombre stripping sequence.

Sometimes simplicity is best and so to let the yarn shine, the only stitch patterns used are stockinette and a yo, k2tog mesh.

This makes it the perfect pattern for that special hand-painted yarn.
