Pattern Description:

Xenia is a generously sized, crescent shaped shawl that can be worn casually or for evenings out on the town in your favorite little black dress. With its ability to be worn in many ways, this shawl is sure to become a favorite in your personal knitwear wardrobe, or make a great gift for a scarf-loving friend. The shawl's center features a simple horizontal ridge detail to lend visual interest to an otherwise stockinette fabric. A beautifully scalloped knit on border adds an elegant finishing touch.

Pattern consists of 5 pages with both written and charted instruction. Instructions are also provided for a two-color variation.

I'm a twenty-something Pacific North westerner living in Olympia, Washington. I first learned to knit in the Fall of 2005 and after much self-teaching and practice, began designing my own patterns in early 2010. I know I'm not alone when I say I can't imagine life without my knitting! :)
