KAL Arcturus Shawl Jun-Jul 2022

Get your needles ready to join in our Knit Along with Shara Made and her stunning Arcturus Shawl. 

The Arcturus is a large, beautifully patterned shawl that you can wrap all the way around yourself on a chilly evening. Perfect for stargazing.

This is a deceptively easy pattern, and is very achievable, even for a dedicated beginner. With only knit stitches used, that’s right, no purling at all through the entire shawl, and basic increases, this is the perfect pattern for your first adventure into colour work or your 100th colour work masterpiece.

The colour work sections are made using the mosaic technique, which uses only one colour per row.
