Crooked Cathedral is a mid-sized crescent shaped shawl. It rests on the shoulders, but also wraps easily around the neck. The delicate, airy quality makes this a great choice as a warm weather accessory or wedding shawl. The design requires one skein of fingering weight/sock yarn, but it is customizable to larger dimensions.
The body of the shawl is asymmetrical and consists of diagonal stripes on one side, and stockinette on the other. The stitch sequences in this design are quite easy to execute and very intuitive.
The stitch pattern for the final lace border is my own design!
The pattern provides both written instructions (for those who do not use charts), as well as charted instructions (for those who do!). A stitch count table and special instructions for enlargement of both the body and the lace edging are included!
Take Note : As of April 10, changes have been made to the Written Instructions for the Body of the Shawl with respect to marker placement. An updated .pdf has been made available.
