The stitch pattern used for this shawl, both the shape and its 3D quality, reminds me of tea cups. I imagine giving this shawl as a present to a friend or a family member to express that they are “my cup of tea.” Or if you keep it for yourself with the message that “I am my cup of tea,” it may serve for enhancing self-love and self-compassion.
The shawl is shaped as a deep crescent with increases along the sides of the shawl and in the patterned section. The shawl is worked top down in one piece, and the size is easily customizable—the pattern repeat is only 8 rows. While the sample is worked from sport weight, the shawl will look great when worked in any weight yarn, from fingering to worsted.
