The Arrow Caterpillar Shawl – based on the die Pfeilraupe

Knit-a-long starting March 12th.  Meet up on Thursday evenings March 17th through April 14th. 

This is a beautiful and fun pattern.  I give all credit to the original author and only offer this in an attempt to clarify the instructions for American knitters.

Materials: One skien of Blue Heron Organic Cotton.  US 6 or 7 - 32' or 40' circular needles.  25 stitch markers.  Crochet hook in similar size to needles. Tapestry needle.

This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners.  It is done in a garter stitch, but because of the short rows, increases and button holes there is enough going on to keep your interest.  It also goes fairly quickly once you get into the rhythm.
