Katara is a shaped shawl worked side-to-side with the main body worked in garter stitch. The neck shaping allows it to gracefully sit on your shoulders without a pin.

This shawl includes working short-rows at the same time as a lace edging. The instructions are available in written and charted form in a 15-page pdf. The charted instructions are listed separately so that you can only print out the pages you need.

The shawl uses one skein of SugarbeeStudios’ Politically Incorrect MCN Fingering Weight yarn in the Frigid colorway. The Merino/Cashmere/Nylon blend blocks out beautifully. The finished shawl measures 60” wide and 22” deep.

The lovely model in the photograph is SugarbeeStudios’ daughter.The shawl is named after a character in The Last Airbender cartoon series. We’ve been having marathon sessions at home. Katara is a waterbender who hails from the South Pole, so the icy/watery colorway is perfect.
