Isurus is a bias-knit triangle shawl with stripes! It looks detailed, and uses some intermediate techniques, but isn’t difficult to work.

This design stretches a super-luxe yarn by using it as a CC, while pairing it with a less-expensive (but still nice!) solid MC.

You can also think of it as breaking up a more vibrant/complicated hand-dyed yarn with a solid MC, to moderate and get the best of both.

Also: it has stripes, very classic.

On the first edition of this pattern, there is no error! Most people should be all set. On the second edition, I tried to make a minor change, fumbled it wildly, and briefly made a .PDF available with the cast-on instructions for the wrong shawl. (I was very excited to change the upcoming shawl by 1 st. I also wanted to make some aesthetic changes to the Isurus pattern. This didn’t play out well on the road.)

At this point, the .PDF has had its earlier corrections corrected.
