Created for Yarnbox’s February 2017 Classic Box, the Yeseria Shawl is designed to use up two skeins of lovely sportweight yarn from Miss Babs. The knitting begins with just three stitches and then progresses upward through bands of graceful, lacy arabesques (based on a style of plaster carving—yeseria—found in Spain and Northern Africa). An elegant i-cord bind-off finishes the generously-sized shawl.

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions.
