The Philomena Shawl was originally written as a Mystery Knit Along for the Maine Yarn Cruise in 2019 and is now being re-released as a single pattern. This shawl was named in honor of my mother—Catherine Philomena—who filled our summers with adventure.

This oversized crescent shawl is an engaging project, perfect for any level of knitter. Filled with eyelets, stripes and some fun lace it is sure to keep you interested and allow you to play with color. It has charted and written directions, lots of tips and three options for bindoff. This is a fun knit and oh so wearable.
