TFA Tuesday - battlefieldchick's The Light at the End of the Tunnel

Ah fall is definitely here! My yard is littered with red leaves, there are potted mums popping up absolutely everywhere, neighbours are starting to decorate their stoops with pumpkins and best of all, their is an unmistakable chill in the air... it's sweater weather! Scarf weather! Shawl weather! Hooray!

To kick off the season I thought I'd feature a lovely little shawl that would be just the right accessory to wrap around your shoulders this fall to keep away the chill. This is Battlefieldchick's version of the very popular Daybreak Shawl by Stephen West knit in TFA Blue Label Fingering Weight yarn in Buttercup and Midnight. Ravelry project page here, blog post here.

My favorite thing about this shawl pattern is, naturally, the graphic use of colour.  And I particularly like how Battlefieldchick chose such a punchy, primary duo. This shawl would definitely jazz up any outfit, which is exactly what any good accessory should do.
