Ceciliana is a large and cosy crescent shawl that combines the interplay of two contrasting colours in mosaic knitting with some fun short row shaping.
The stitch pattern is easy to knit as it uses slipped stitches and only one colour per row.
Pick your two favourite colours and wrap yourself up in this eyecatching item!
