Product details

Cape Perpetua is a gentle, crescent-shaped shawl with a garter stitch body and a wave pattern border to represent the headlands and the crashing surf.

The shawl is worked end-to-end, with the waves growing until a full repeat of the stitch pattern is reached. The pattern repeat is worked with increases as many times as desired for adjustable length and then it is worked with decreases to narrow the shawl back down on the other side of the “cape”, which mirrors the starting end of the shawl and the view from Cape Perpetua.

This shawl can be worn around the shoulders as a capelet or wrapped around the neck as a scarf. Lace held double, or Fingering or even DK held single. Yarn with good drape and stitch definition is recommended. The twisted stitch cables are easier to work than it appears; instructions are included for working them without a cable needle.

Size is adjusted by adding or subtracting pattern repeats. Yarn required held single is about 450 yards.
