A Quatrain is a verse or poem with four lines that often consists of alternating rhyme. It’s also a great description of the movement and shape created in this shawl.

Designed originally as a MKAL, the pattern has been updated to include just 1 download, rather than multiple clues. I’ve also made video tutorials for all of the “tricky bits”. The link to the YouTube channel is included with the pattern.

This shawl takes 3 skeins of fingering weight yarn. The original sample was worked in yarns with 438 yards per skein. You can use yarns with less yardage, but your shawl will be smaller. I’ve designed the pattern to use up most of your yarn.
