A striking crescent shawl knitted in sport weight yarn, Zelda looks great worn draped around your shoulders with her long slender ends curling to the front, or snuggled up twice around your neck.

The relaxing garter body is created with simple increases and the textured border is knitted entirely with slipped stitches. Every row uses just one colour at a time!

Once you’ve done a few rows and seen how it goes, you’ll be knitting and chatting with the best of them.

The pattern is ideal for an adventurous beginner and includes both written & charted instructions and links to helpful tutorials.

Pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knitted.

2 skeins each of colours A & B. Sample shown in colourways “London Town” (colour A) & “Earl” (colour B)

Finished Measurements
Width: approx. 254cm/100” (blocked) Depth at the widest part: approx. 35.5cm/ 14” (blocked)

Errata: All the slipped stitches in the written instructions for WS Rows 14 & 22 should read “sl1wyif” so that the yarn is held at the front of your work when they’re slipped.
