This sinuous shawlette is designed to show off unusual
colorways while fighting pooling with varying-width edging
and tapered ends. Short rows at the center back curve the
shawlette into a shoulder-hugging crescent and add interest
to the pattern. Babylon is worked from tip to tip in one
piece. The neck edge has an i-cord border for comfort and to
prevent curling.

This pattern was inspired by a beautiful lace edging and a
gorgeous skein of sock yarn that just didn’t want to be a pair
of socks.
