Following on the heels of the hugely popular T.A.R.D.I.Socks, this double shawl pattern features the famous Blue Box motif as a border to two sideways-knit crescents. The motif retains its distinct shaping and cable vortex but has been simplified to make this a moderately easy knit. Two lengths gives the option to wear as a draped shawlette or a wrap-around shawl and two different fibre content yarns are suggested to give even more options. Pattern is charted with written explanation.
