Pattern Description:

A colonnade is a row of columns carrying an elaborately decorated entablature, architecture that speaks to me of taking the time to create true beauty. I hope to invoke similar feelings with this shawl.

Corinthian Colonnade is a crescent-shaped shawl. It requires 400-700 meters of fingering or sport weight yarn. Use needle size that gives you a nice lacy effect. The shawl can be enlarged by adding additional repeats. The pattern is charted.
