Dryad is a great stash buster, resourceful way to use up some mini skeins, or a unique way to showcase a gradient set.

Detailed notes if you wish to make the shawl bigger or smaller are included, as well as the quantities of yarn used for each section so you can plan to your heart’s content. This shawl is incredibly easy to unleash your creativity on.

Dryad is worked in flat and the pattern consists of both written directions and charts. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used, refer to the notes section in the pattern for the exact breakdown yardage used for each section and how I broke down my gradient set through the shawl.
