Captain Marvel was my gateway comic to the rest of the Marvel universe. When I saw she was getting a movie, I felt inspired to try and design a shawl for her. This is my first ever design, and I’m excited to share it with the world!

This is a textured, faroese shaped shawl - the first section is a slip stitch pattern with garter/stockinette stripes (charts included). The second texture section is a wrap-stitch lattice (written instructions). The border is an applied lace border (chart included).

The Hala star is needlepoint separately using a long/short stitch and then sewn on to the shawl. A schematic of the needlepoint pattern is included.


The pictured shawl is around a 57” total wingspan, and 25” from the cast-on to the lowest point on the border.


20 sts x 26 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch.


For the pictured shawl:
• 240 yds (1 skein) Dream in Color Classy – Miami Red
• 100 yds (1 skein) Dream in Color Classy – Amber Glass
• 800 yds (4 skeins) Dream in Color Classy – Indigo

I want to thank LYS The Black Purl for helping me out with yarn suggestions, and pattern help!
