Steadfast Shawl




The Steadfast Shawl is the ideal transitional weather accessory for late summer to early fall. This top down, lace and cable triangular shawl shows off the stitch definition of a solid or mostly-solid fingering weight yarn to great effect. Pair it with your favorite outfit as a statement piece or wrap it around your neck underneath a jacket to chase away the chill as the seasons change.

The triangular shawl is worked flat from from the long cast on edge and decreased down to one stitch for a gratifying and beautiful project sure to be worn for many seasons to come.  This pattern is charted.
