The Arius Shawl is the sister pattern to the Caprius Shawl. This shawl is knit bottom-up, using double decreases and single increases to shape the shawl into its asymmetrical shape, that slants to the left. While the cast-on and first couple of sections require a large amount of stitches, the knitting goes faster and faster the more you knit. The shawl features an eyelet section paired up with a pop of color in the form of miniature bobbles on a stockinette background. Use a neutral color for the background and a bright, bubbly, vivid, fun color for the bobble strands! Get creative!

  • Background color: 3 skeins of Woolfolk TYND “6”
  • Contrast Color: 1 skein of Shibui Staccato “Raspberry”

Total Yardage Used: 600 yards of background color, 70 yards of contrast color.
