Picabeau is a crescent shaped small shawl, with asymmetrical construction that first increases and then decreases in a gently curved shape. The diagonal construction is highlighted by regular rows of YOs that swoop across the shawl and create visual movement. 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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Techniques & Skills Used: knit, increasing/decreasing, cable CO, picots. GAUGE Gauge: 20 st and 40 rows/4" in garter stitch, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Size: one size, approximately 60" along bottom curve and 8" center depth, after blocking.
