Catlett Shawl

Shawl Knitting PatternThe Catlett Shawl by Susanna IC is featured in Interweave Knits Fall 2016. The pattern can be purchased on its own or with the magazine.

Inspired by the graceful architecture of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Catlett Shawl is an elongated crescent that juxtaposes textured lace with smooth stockinette and garter stitch. The combination of stitches creates a modern interpretation of the bridge’s classic outline.
