A little bit of loveliness to drape around your shoulders. A textured, crescent-shaped shawl that can also be bundled about the neck as a scarf.

I had a bit of trouble coming up with a name for this pattern. I wanted something as unique and beautiful as the shawl itself; something that would commend its artistry - and so reflect on the First and Greatest Artist, God - and compliment it’s golden color. I chose Lionberry because the rich yellow shades reminded me of Aslan’s mane, as well as referencing the Great Lion Himself; and berry because it is the fruit of my labors. I am so grateful for the God-given abilities to work with my hands; to seek out wool and flax, and rejoice in the working of them.

Oh, and yes: I think fine, handknit shawls look great with graphic tees.

NOTE: I knit this project left-handed; however, the only significant difference for those knitting right-handed is that the parallelograms will slant in the opposite direction as that pictured.

Thanks for stopping to look at my pattern.

I have revised the pattern, eradicating my complex increases, and making a few other minor adjustments. It should now be a bit simpler to follow!

Many thanks for all the suggestions and corrections knitters have given - I commend your patience and fortitude!
