Assepoester is the Dutch name of Cinderella. This shawl looks rustic and comforting because of the use of worsted weight yarn, but the delicate patterning reveils the hidden princess, just like with Cinderella. I got inspired for this shawl at a KIP picknick, where the yarn and the good company gave me the initial idea. The shawl is made in a pi-like construction, and is slightly more than semicircular. It encompasses a couple of techniques, like easy brioche, lace, short rows and picot, but because of the thickness of the yarn, it’s a manageable project nonetheless.

The pattern includes both charts and written out instructions. It is suited for both (semi)solid and variegated yarns.
There are options for making the shawl larger. They are included in the pattern. The standard size shawl is the variegated one in the pictures, the blue one is the larger version. In the second photograph you can see them together to see the size difference.
