Acadian can be worn as a shawl or a scarf. It is knitted tip to tip. The model is knit in worsted weight, but you can use any weight yarn you like, though you may need to knit more or less repeats to get the desired length and your yardage requirements will vary. The model is 76” long by 18” deep. Longer is better with this shawl!

This is an intermediate pattern that requires knowledge of chart reading, increases, and decreases. If you need help, just PM me.

Please note that I need to update the email address on the pattern but you can always PM me here at Ravelry and I will get it in my email.

Some people are confused by the “no stitch” square in the chart. The chart sofware puts that there to make the row come out the same number of squares as the rest of the chart, to account for the decrease. Just ignore that square and go straight to the next stitch on the chart.
