New Caesar - Shawl
This pattern can be purchased individually or as part of the New Caesars collection (2 patterns for 4 euros). Please decide before purchasing as I am afraid refunds cannot be issued for one pattern against the price of the collection.
Mosaic knitting makes this easier than it looks - you basically just knit stripes and slip stiches - could be made by an advanced beginner.
The pattern is modular so you can adjust it to suit your taste or the amount of yarn you have available.
You’ll need at least 250m/275 yds of CC (can be variegated, long-striping, gradient, solid or semi-solid) and a little more of the MC (solid or semi-solid) in fingering/sport/DK or worsted weight.
Quotes from the testers:
- For those new to knitting and still intimidated by charts, this pattern and chart are very intuitive. I had never done Mosaic, used a chart or done a garter tab previously.
…the rows have got quicker to do the bigger it’s got, it’s really simple knitting and very easy to get into a rhythm ‘knitting/purling & slipping’
- A fabulous pattern - far simpler to knit than you would imagine from looking at the finished shawl. Easy to memorise after the first few repeats, and addictive to knit.
- I LOVE this!! Gorgeous graphic design, easier to knit than it looks, wonderfully written pattern with eye-popping results!
Many thanks to the testers for their stunning knits, helpful comments and fabulous photos:
