This listing is for an instant download KNITTING PATTERN in pdf and not the actual item.

This super shawl is triangular shaped with four shadowy cats lurking amongst the stripes.

The shawl is knit mainly in stocking stitch from the top down, The garment features a simple decorative cast off edging along the two sides and garter stitch across the top. The cats are added using a thicker, chunky/bulky weight yarn and duplicate stitch (Swiss darning) upon completion of the shawl; this means you can add as many cats as you like, placing them where you wish, or leave the shawl cat free! The shawl is knit flat on two needles; a circular needle is used towards the end to accommodate the growing number of stitches!

Materials: I used Stylecraft Malabar (Aran weight, cotton/silk)
