THIS LISTING IS FOR A PATTERN ONLY. THIS IS NOT A LISTING FOR A FINISHED PIECE.
So I have a confession to make. I never liked traditional shawls. I have a ton of scarves! But I never feel in love with a shawl. But recently, I’ve been wanting a piece to drape over my shoulders. I realized that traditional triangle scarves didn’t drape like I wanted them too. They have a long, straight top edge that tapers to a point. That straight (2D) edge just doesn’t drape well over a 3D body!
So I started to think about shaping. Sweaters use techniques to make a 2D fabric fit a 3D body. So I setting on using raglan shaping for my shawl. Instead of a straight top edge, this shawl is a crescent shape, making it perfectly for a chilly night or when the AC is a little too enthusiastic inside!
I also created this shawl in 2 sizes. I wanted it to work for all bodies, and look amazing. There is generous ease built in, this pattern will easy fit up to at least a 65 in bust!
This is an intermediate knitting pattern. If you are an adventurous beginner, I say give this one a try! I’ve got tons of tutorials on the Abstractions Shawl page on my blog.

Inclusive knitwear for every body!
I believe that no one should have to chose between beauty and function when it comes to our clothing. I started My Grandmother’s Old Singer to design knitwear that is easy to wear and free from difficult fasteners. But above all else, to provide beautiful knitwear accessories that everyone can feel wonderful wearing.
