Jackson Square is a shallow, crescent-shaped shawl that’s worked from the top down, beginning with a garter tab cast-on. The neat columns of twisted ribbing in the body flow into a lacy point-and-spear edging reminiscent of the wrought iron fences bordering Jackson Square in New Orleans’ French Quarter.
Finished Size (Smallest): 49 inches (124.5 cm) along top edge, by 15 inches (38 cm) deep at center.
Jackson Square is part of a collaboration between independent dyer French Market Fibers, designer Beth Kling and craftstress (you know, like a seamstress, only even craftier) That Clever Clementine (aka MsVicki).
The Jackson Square pattern will initially be offered exclusively as part of a limited-edition kit (which includes yarn, pattern and a project bag) sold by French Market Fibers. Orders open at 6 pm Eastern Standard Time (US/Canada) on 11/28/12. The ordering process will be somewhat non-traditional, so you may want to check out the details in Post 83 over here, in the French Market Fibers Ravelry Group.
Until February 1, 2013, Jackson Square will be available exclusively as part of the kit from French Market Fibers.
