Agatha is a lacy crescent shaped shawl that can be knitted in a variety of weights of wool. This is a charted pattern, and makes an interesting and easy to wear shawl.

The sample shawl was made from three skeins of ShiBui Knits Merino Kid, a DK weight merino and kid mohair blend (not brushed), at 218 yards per skein (roughly 660 yards total). The patterned body of the shawl took two skeins, while the third skein made the border. You can substitute any fingering, sport, DK or worsted weight yarn.

This pattern is for intermediate knitters. Skills required include increasing and decreasing, yarn overs, backwards loop cast on, bind off, and blocking.

The finished sample shawl was 24” deep from top edge to bottom point, and 50” wide. These measurements may seem small if you’re used to standard triangular shawls, but Agatha’s deeply curved shape belies the small dimensions, and is easy to wear.

Shown on a model (thanks Janet!) in one photograph, you can see how it looks on a tall slender wearer (Janet is 5’10”). It looks great on me too, and I’m shorter and, umm, rounder. Lots rounder. ;-)
