Available as an individual pattern or as part of The Crescendo Collection eBooklet, a five-piece shawl collection.
Sonatina is a lace-bordered shawl that almost has a cable-effect. The border is knit in one length, before you turn, pick up stitches along one edge and begin your shawl shaping. The best part about a crescent-shaped shawlette is that it is an instant gratification project - easy start, easy construction, and quick end. Add in a bit of stunning lace and you have the perfect project!
With this pattern, you are getting clearly written instructions AND charted instructions that have been heavily reviewed and edited. Crisp, detailed photographs and a clean, bright pattern layout add a bit of joy to your pattern buying experience.
In my world, there aren’t any hard and fast rules to shawls - switch around the yarn and/or needle sizes, play with the depth, or try a multi-color yarn. Just remember that while gauge is not critical to the finished piece, it does affect the amount of yarn used so be sure to adjust this in your planning.
I hope you enjoy the simplicity and elegance that Sonatina offers.
