Calypso is a top-down crescent-shaped shawl that challenges you with some in lacework and then rewards you with some mindless knitting. Calypso could be knit in a solid color or mix and matched using two different colored skeins. The last lace section of this shawl works incredibly well with busy yarns that may be lingering in your stash, so find a solid to pair it up with and go!
Worked flat, Calypso contains written directions and charts. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you with your rows and stitch counts. Yardage for each section is given should you wish to turn this into a scrappy project!
