Revised and updated 9 July 2016 to include sizing for worsted weight yarns and with hints on lengthening the shawl. New samples include a worsted weight version (Rainbow)“

The Medusa Cascade is a swirling, colorful rift in time and space from science fiction. This lovely yarn reminded me of those swirling colors but it just didn’t cooperate with most stitch patterns. This versatile little shawl was specifically designed to showcase that gorgeous but uncooperative skein of variegated yarn. The uncomplicated stitch pattern lets your beautiful yarn do all the work for you.

Wear this versatile shawl as a wrap for those cool evenings, a topper for a sundress, a chic scarf or even tied around the hips. It’s knit from the center back down with a single 100-gram skein of luxury sock yarn. The unusual shaping of this modified triangular shawl helps it stay on the shoulders better. Suitable for the Advanced Beginner to Intermediate knitter.
