Dusk

the line between day and night

Nightfall is forever encapsulated in my mind as a gentle rolling of darkness over the day, a giant shade slowly enveloping the sky. Dusk is the representation of the lingering blue that clings to the early evening just after twilight. In this shawl, I blended the classic construction of the square Shetland Hap shawl with contemporary ideas about corner shaping. All the increases happen in the eyelet rounds by eliminating the corresponding decreases. Though knit seamlessly in rounds, I have placed slip stitches at the corners to both hide the color joins and to give a nod to traditional seaming.
