Named after a genus of damselflies, the Ischnura Shawl is a warm and cozy cool weather accessory. Knit in bulky weight wool, this shawl is worked flat from the bottom up on a circular needle, beginning with the lace section. Short rows are used to shape the upper (garter stitch) section.

Gauge is not crucial for this design, but if your gauge differs from the pattern gauge, the dimensions of your shawl will be different as well. If you knit at a looser gauge, you may need more yarn.
