Chisholm: a shawl in eight sections

The alpaca and silk blend of Bluebonnet Hills Alpaca Ranch Yarns Treasures DK weight yarn is so incredibly soft and luxurious that I keep finding myself knitting with it.  As a cool front moves in and it starts to feel like autumn, a soft, cozy shawl is just the thing.  Two colorways play tag throughout eight easy-to-knit sections and soon you'll be wrapped in color and coziness.
This pattern is free and has not been tested.  I've done my best to make the pattern error-free but I'm just a human being.  I will post errata here if/when they are necessary.

Finfeather Showl

The Finfeather showl is a crocheted shawl-cowl hybrid

I love to wear a shawl draped with its center point to the front.  Over the course of a day, however, I will fuss and fidget with the drape, and the ends, and my shawl pin until wearing a beautiful shawl is as much of a distraction to me as it is a fashion statement.  Enter the “showl” – a shawl-cowl hybrid that incorporates the best of both items.  It stays put without a shawl pin and lets you show off your beautiful stitching to its fullest!  It’s sure to become your new favorite accessory!
