The Cathay Williams shawl is a crescent shaped shawl knit flat with sections of mesh and textured slip stitches. It uses two skeins of sock yarn to create a cozy shaped shawl that is perfect for chilly nights. The slipped stitch texture shows off highly variegated yarns. The length of the shawl is adaptable if you would like to adjust the size of your shawl or the amount of yarn used.
