REFLECTOR

Reflector is the perfect project for two special skeins of fingering weight yarn. Alternating stripes in Stockinette Stitch and Garter Stitch create a subtle texture that complements the boldly contrasting colours. A simple Intarsia colour change at the middle of each row gives the shawl its unique two-colour look, and the Picot Bind Off adds a beautiful finished edge without competing with the bold look of the rest of the piece.
