Cretaceous is a rather simple shawl, made interesting by an unusual construction. The different knitting directions are perfect to showcase interesting yarns. You can also knit it in one colour with great results.
It is a small shawl that feels like a nice hug due to its elasticity – obtained from the garter stitch and the knitting direction of the body.
