Believe it or not, Rupert started out as a swatch to see how micro stripe yarn knit up. Only, before I knew it I was half way through what would become a shawl and knew exactly what I wanted it to look like when it was done! Sometimes the yarn really does take over.
Rupert starts as a crescent shapes shawl but then goes on to have a deep, flat sided border to add depth without additional width. The result is a warn snuggly shawl that hugs your shoulders and drapes down your back.
I know you’re wondering why on earth this pretty shawl is called “Rupert”, well, that’s what happens when you let your smarty pants husband name the pattern!
