I've named this pattern the Cadfael (pronounced CAD-vile. it's Welsh) because my husband Charles was reading to me from that series of mystery novels (by Ellis Peters) while I worked on it. The shawl is roughly semi-circular, but with a bit of a curve across the top that can be used as a self-collar. " ~ Designer, James Strieby
Because of the shape of this shawl, the pattern is a bit, well, dense: the increases are worked over five rows, but because of offset and a straight row between increases, the overall pattern only repeats after twelve rows. I would, therefore, recommend this shawl for intermediate crocheters and above. Please note also that you.ll need to block pretty strenuously to really bring out the beauty of the stitch pattern.
