Kits (includes yarn and pattern) for both of the color ways shown are available on the String Theory website.

Kneisel Point is a crescent shaped shawl that combines artful slip stitch cables and a simple lace pattern in a melodic composition.

The crescent shaped shawl is worked from the top down, beginning with a modified garter tab.

Only one color is worked at a time, the cable pattern is created by slipping color A stitches over the color B rows.

Yardage needed may change based on your yarn and gauge, checking your gauge helps to assure you will have enough yarn to complete the shawl.
