This pretty crescent shawl will take you from fall to winter and on to spring — it’s perfect for every season. Wear it draped elegantly over your shoulders, or wrapped once or twice around your neck like a scarf.

Catbird is worked from the bottom up, beginning with the lace pattern. Short rows in the garter stitch section give the shawl its gentle crescent shape. The pattern provides instructions for two sizes, worked in fingering weight yarn.

NOTE: If you are substituting yarn, be sure to use a skein of fingering weight that has at least 425 yards, which is the yardage for the smaller size of Catbird. With a 400-yard skein, you might run out of yarn. It would also be a good idea to swatch and check your BLOCKED gauge. Larger stitches use more yarn, so if your gauge is loose, you could run out of yarn.
