There is so much to love about the Ciri shawl. Stripes and a delicate lace pattern play beautifully together, and the picot trim adds just a touch of romance. Knit in Ravello – a dreamy blend of cotton, merino, and recycled cashmere – this piece is appropriate for every season. The fabric drapes beautifully thanks to the loose gauge. You won’t be able to resist wrapping this generously-sized shawl around your neck and shoulders.

PATTERN NOTES This boomerang-shaped shawl is worked on the bias, beginning with the smallest point. It features alternating sections of stripes and lace. It is finished with a crochet picot trim along the bind-off edge.
When working in Stripes sections, do not break yarn at the end of each stripe. Instead, twist the strands of yarn around one another every RS row, taking care not to twist too tightly.
The Lace sections are charted for your convenience. You may wish to place markers between each pattern repeat to help you stay on track.
