Product details

Strands of Pearls is a combo pattern with instructions for both a cowl/infinity scarf and for a top-down crescent shawl (with 3 sizes). Written instructions are used.

Contrasting stripes and slipped stitches provide visual and textural interest in these pieces. Work a cowl/infinity scarf or a top-down, narrow crescent shawl. Using vibrant or muted colors dramatically changes the mood of the finished piece. Samples are shown in heavy fingering/sport weight yarn, but any weight yarn may be used (adjust yardage accordingly).

Cowl uses US size 5 and 6 needles; shawl uses US size 6 needles.
