The Strength Within – This top-down crescent-shaped shawl is designed with a variety of different techniques to keep you hooked without becoming tedious. Worked flat, The Strength Within contains written directions and charts. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you with your row and stitch counts.
This shawl pattern shines well with solid, semi-solid, or lightly variegated/speckled yarns. The Strength Within also looks spectacular in a long slow changing gradient. Picking an appropriate yarn for this project will ensure you don’t lose the fun cables achieved in the first section, nor have a yarn that distracts from the lovely textured motifs that follow.
