  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Embrace texture with this top-down semi-circular shawl. Knits and purls create the basketweave pattern that crescendos from small basketweave motifs into larger blocks of texture. The pattern includes notes on customizing the size of the shawl to create a smaller size or follow the instructions as written for a beautiful large DK weight shawl. The sample features Undercover Otter’s Eventide DK yarn, a luscious blend of merino, silk, and yak. DK and worsted weight yarns are all suitable for this beautiful basketweave shawl.
