This pattern is part of a CAL. It will be released in stages. If you purchase the pattern, you won’t get it right away. You will get a pre-release PDF prior to May 1st that gives you supplies, measurements, gauge, etc. Additional sections will be released on May 8th and May 13th.

The Alera Shawl is an asymmetric triangle shawl that begins at one pointed end and increases to the opposite side. It transitions through three different stitch patterns, each with it’s own unique texture. This design was inspired by a particular clothing item in Furies of Calderon, the first book in the Codex Alera series.

The Codex Alera CAL is a crochet along inspired by the Codex Alera book series by Jim Butcher. This is a fantasy series of six books. The new pattern I have designed for this 2021 crochet along is called Alera Shawl.

The Crochet Along is a special event. Everyone that participates talks together in my Facebook group, The Studio Bunch, about the crochet pattern, their projects, and in this case, the first book in the series! The idea is to read, or more likely, listen to the audio book, as you crochet your shawl, and talk with everyone else about both throughout the two-week event. There will be a giveaway leading up to the event, and three prizes to giveaway during and at the end of the event!

Happy crocheting!
