Pattern Description:

Picabeau is a crescent shaped small shawl, with asymmetrical construction that first increases and then decreases in a gently curved shape.

One luscious skein is all that is required for this versatile and wearable accessory; instructions are given to make the shawl using any amount of yardage.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size: one size, approximately 60" along bottom curve and 8" center depth, after blocking.

Materials:
