Escapado Shawl was designed for 2016's Nautical Knitting Cruise!
Escapado is inspired by the traditional Hap Shawls of Shetland with a twist! After starting with Judy's Magic Cast on this shawl is worked from the center out in the round in garter stitch. It includes attached I-Cord, short row “eyes”, a beaded Feather and Fan edging and is finished off with a beaded bind off. Video tutorials are included in the pattern for any techniques you aren't familiar with!
