Blue Zircon PDF


Part of the Birthstone Shawl Collection

Pattern is fully written and charted

Blue Zircon was inspired by snowflakes.

The cool icy blue lends itself to snowy thoughts and so this design was born.

The shawl has 6 repeating panels which shape it into a deep crescent. The sample shawl was blocked with the wingspan tips pointing up in a “U” shape. You may also block the wingspan straight if preferred.
The final rows drop stitches. If you like the look without dropping stitches you can skip this step. The result will be a more modest curve to the bottom edge.
