Pattern Description:

Shadow and Glow is a square shawl with endless wearability. This surprisingly versatile shape can be folded in half and worn as a cushy triangular shawl, wrapped around the neck as a scarf, or draped over the shoulders for a unique look. Graduated stripes in shadowy grey and glowing green play against each other in different ways depending on how the piece is worn. This is a very simple knit, worked from the center out in Stockinette stitch with a Garter stitch border. Photo tutorials are provided for the Provisional Cast On used in the beginning of the piece as well as for the Magic Loop technique.
