Abraxas Crescent

by Åsa Tricosa

Åsa’s design process in a nutshell: If I love how this pattern looks, what will happen if I …. change the yarn? change the shape?  change the garment?

That was the design evolution for the Abraxas series.  When Åsa launched her Abraxis Cardigan at Vogue Knitting Live in 2019, I distinctly remember her comment that the hourglass pattern would make a beautiful shawl.  So, it was no surprise when Åsa designed the Abraxas Crescent – the Prologue and first Bonus Pattern in the Jubilæum eBook. 

Available only as part of The Jubilæum Collection eBook on Ravelry, the Abraxas Crescent is a shawl that wraps nicely around your shoulders and stays in place due to the crescent. The hourglass pattern and interesting rib on this swingy crescent-shaped shawl are beautifully enhanced by Gallivant, a soft luxurious yarn that magically creates both drape and stitch definition.

MEASUREMENTS: 21” deep by 118” wingspan (wingspan measured along the lower edge)

NEEDLES: US 8 (5 mm) circular needle, 32-40” (80-100cm)

GAUGE (blocked): 20 sts x 24 rows on US8 (5mm) needles over hourglass pattern = 4”/10cm
Gauge is not critical,  but note that yardage requirements may change if your gauge is different.
