Notes from the Designer:
Worked in Thyme Hues, the colors of Reveil are a reminder of nature’s awakening in spring from the long winter months. This asymmetrical triangle shawl starts with only a few stitches at the tip and slowly obtains its shape by continually increasing on one edge only. The shawl contains three sections with each section highlighting a different color. Every section is worked in a different stitch pattern, which results in interesting texture and fabric changes. The shawl is completed with the addition of optional tassels at every tip.

- Reveil is an asymmetrical triangle shawl that is divided into three sections, with each section worked in a different main color and stitch pattern. The selected stitch patterns stand out due to their easy, but diverse nature, which incorporates knits, purls, and slipped stitches. To obtain the triangle shape, the stitch count is increased along a single edge on every other row. The shawl is finished off by blocking it into straight lines and adding optional tassels.
- To achieve the best effect for Section 2, I suggest choosing a color for C2 that contrasts well with both C1 and C3. C2 is carried along the edge for the entirety of Section 2.
- All slipped stitches are slipped purlwise with yarn in front if not otherwise noted.
- The four setup rows are not counted in the total row count of Section 1. Each section resets the row count.
- In Section 2, the bars of the slipped stitches should be shifted, which will create a staggered look.
- Some rows in Section 2 and 3 begin with a “slip 2 stitches with yarn in front” to offset the stitch pattern.
- The length and width of the shawl can be adjusted individually, but note that the sample used approximately 505 yds (~ 168 yds of each color). For a longer or wider version, you’ll potentially need additional yarn. Continue to work your preferred section to increase the measurements.
- If desired, tassels can be attached to each corner to give the shawl its final touch.
- Check out this video for instructions on how to make tassels.
- For the color changes, you can either cut your yarn and weave in the tails, or you can carry the strands up the side. The choice is up to you. Watch a tutorial about carrying your yarn along the edge here.

Reveil Shawl Pattern
I just got the pattern a few days ago. I haven't even had time to read it or go through my stash to find the right yarn. When I finish the shawl, I will tell you if I liked it or liked the pattern.
Beautiful pattern can't wait to make it
Your yarn is always so easy to order to go with the free pattern. I love your yarn
This is a very pretty shawl, the stitch pattern loks easy to learn, and the colors go so well together.
Just getting started
I had to restart the first 5 rows but I think I get it now. I'm looking forward to really sinking my teeth into it. The yarn feels great but the twisted colors are a challenge. It's getting better as I get more done.
Pretty and practical
I’ve never had a poor pattern from EFA. This one is just another lovely in a long list of lovelies. Thank you.
