Maritana is the official shawl for the 2016 Knit North Yarn Crawl. It is a triangular shawl worked flat from top to bottom. Sections of stockinette and slip stitch patterns are worked with alternating colors to create a beautiful combination of color and texture. The shawl can be easily modified to be bigger or smaller by adding or removing repeats.
