A modern twist on traditional lace knitting, Settler is a stylish, airy, crescent-shaped shawl using just one skein of fingering yarn.

Wrap Settler around your neck as a snugly scarf or gracefully drape it across your shoulders.

The garter stitch body makes for a relaxing knit, perfect for handbag knitting and chatting with friends.

The funky criss-crossed border is fun to knit and simple to master.

Ideal for the adventurous beginner.

The suggested yarn is a plump, single spun fingering. If you are substituting another yarn, allow for at least the longer length of yarn recommended.
