The solid upper portion is complemented by the striking slip stitch edging that creates the look of mermaid scales thanks to self-shading Colorburst. This shawl is excellent for year-round wear, keeping you cozy in any climate!

In this pattern, work all slipped stitches purlwise with yarn held to the wrong side of work.
