A striking shawl duo worked with a seed stitch feather and fan combo and short rows for a triangular shape. Just like its astrological namesake, Cusp of Gemini has a dual personality and can work equally well in a variegated yarn or a striping yarn.

Size: 43” long, 24” tall

22 sts/25 rows = 4” over charted pattern after blocking; gauge is not critical for this pattern but may affect yardage.

The shawl is cast on for the length and worked with short rows to create the pointed end. The short rows are included in the chart and are not lifted when worked in on the final row before the border. The border is worked over all stitches.
