DESCRIPTION

Tears in Rain is a feather-light shawl inspired by raindrops glittering on spider webs after the rain. Worked in two contrasting textures — a sparkly single-ply and a fluffy mohair blend — this shawl is engaging to knit and the perfect layering piece to wear from cool summer nights to dreary fall days.

Tears in Rain is worked from the top down as a hybrid between a semi-circle and a crescent. Sections of stockinette in the main color and an easily memorizable two-row lace pattern in the contrasting color alternate throughout the body of the shawl. The design is finished with a looped crochet border.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are provided for the lace pattern.
