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 consists of both written directions and charts and is broken down into comprehensive sections. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.
