THIS IS A KIT TO KNIT THE CRUCERO SHAWL OR CRUCERO BANDA (scarf).
Crucero Shawl was originally designed for the 2015 Nautical Knitting Cruise. It starts from the center out in the round and the center back of the shawl is created. Then the stitches are divided... the left and right “wings” are worked separately flat, with beads integrated into the pattern at the end of each wing. Then a crochet beaded border is worked along the bottom edge tying it all together.
A second version of Crucero was designed to be worked flat as a scarf. It starts at the center with a vertical strip. Stitches are then picked up and each side of this strip worked outwards with beads integrated into the pattern at the end of each side.
Crucero is knit in Anzula Breeze, the perfect warm weather shawl yarn... it has stunning drape, and a lovely "grip" so knitting with it is not slippery : )!
