Shawl of Many Shapes by Nim Teasdale

Shawl of Many Shapes

This pattern is available for $10.00 USD buy it now

The Shawl of Many Shapes is 4 patterns in one. The same stitch pattern has been used in 4 different shapes giving the knitter a choice of crescent, 3/4 squareish-circle (aka squircle), triangle, or ‘cresangle’. Or all of the above.

  • Each shape uses a small repeatable chart which can be repeated to any size, and is highly adaptable as to yardage.
  • Work all over lace, edging lace only, or something in between.
  • Short enough to be easy to memorise.
  • Work entirely from the written pattern or from charts.
  • Optional beading included.
  • Suitable for lace to DK weight (all but the crescent could go up to Aran weight.)

The pattern is a mini lesson in shawl shaping and includes all 4 patterns in one. These can be printed as a whole, or select only the pages relevant to the shape you’re working on at the time.

For almost 7 years, the full proceeds of the sale of this pattern have been donated to Médecins Sans Frontières for their work in the places that need it most. Further explanation here.

This fundraiser is now closed as sales have tapered off, and I’d prefer to focus on fundraisers of shorter duration. Thank you so much to everyone who supported MSF through this fundraiser.
