Inch by inch and yard by yard, the Caterpillar Crescent Shaped Lace Shawlette is my “yarn” interpretation of this cute and awesome little creature! The lace is one of overlapping leaves studded with green bead caterpillars, while the shawl in its entirety appears to be one long stunning caterpillar itself. What a great way to greet Spring or Summer. It’s a fun, flirty, breezy way to welcome spring or summer this year. It has a long “wingspan” of over 6 feet…plenty of room to wrap around your shoulders or neck as either a shawl or a scarf. This shawlette is just a foot wide. It is edged in a beautiful lace pattern, and is knit in a soft-against-the-skin fine 100 percent pima cotton yarn (Cascade Ultra Pima Fine in the very vivid green shade of “Sprout”-- sport weight, 3 skeins with each skein being 136 yards) that is breathable, lightweight, and also machine washable (delicate cycle, separately, re-pin to shape flat to dry). It is knit from the bottom up, starting with the lace border, and then short garter rows make up the body of the shawlette in garter stitch and give it its easy-to-wear crescent shape. Quick to knit up, and even more fun to accessorize with!
