Angelus is a striped crescent shaped shawl worked in garter stitch and finished with a knitted-on cabled edging.

This shawl, with its architectural lines and smooth shaping, is the perfect complement to a casual fall outfit. Work it in a luxuriously soft heavy fingering or sport weight yarn for best results. Choose colours that stand out against each other and aren’t too variegated.
Sport weight yarn, at least 305m (335yd) for MC, and 305m (335yd) for CC. Err on the side of caution and opt for a yarn with a higher yardage. Test knitters used up to 343m (375yd) MC and 357m (390yd) CC.
The sample is worked in Malabrigo Arroyo, and used 1 skein each of colour 850 Archangel (MC), and colour 054 Escoria (CC). There was literally no yarn left upon binding off, so if you are concerned about running out of yarn,
