Daybreak in Titus

One of our most popular samples at shows and in our shop, here's how to make our version of Stephen West's Daybreak shawl pattern using baa ram ewe Titus.

                   

Yorkstone version, small size.

Colour A - 1 skein of Titus in Yorkstone. 
Colour B - 6 10g mini skeins of Titus, used in the following order: Parkin, Bantam, Chevin, Aire, Eccup, Coal

Work the set up and Section 1 following the pattern as written.

Work Section 2 using the mini skeins as Colour B in the order specified above. Work two stripes in each shade, for a total of 12 stripes.

Begin working Section 3 (border) using the mini skeins in the same order, working two rows in each shade. Then switch to Colour A to complete the border.

There will be some of Colour A left over. If you have more mini skeins you will be able to make a bigger shawl.
