Anticipating Autumn by Kirsten Kapur
This crescent shaped shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) features a body of brioche stitch, followed by a pretty lacy border. The pattern can be adapted to any yarn weight by using an appropriate needle size, and knit to any desired dimension. The shape, is similar to a half-pi, but is actually a half octagon, with a curved top edge.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
Note: this shawl may be knit using Chebris Sport or Cabécou Brillant sport, using a larger needle such as 7US (4.5mm); yardage will vary accordingly
