Flower of Cebu


Cebu (Queen of the South) is a providence in the Philippines which was also hit hard by taifun Haiyan. I named this design in honor of my friends there, who share everything they have with people in need, build houses and spread Gods love.
This reversible and versatile shawl uses an easy join-as-you-go technique, which creates a beautiful two-colored line on one side and an garter stitch join on the other. 


For your convenience you will find the link to my video tutorial in the pattern section “Techniques used”

There is no limit to get creative with your choice of yarn; Gradient yarn, different colors, leftovers….. Everything is possible. 
This shawl is a great stash buster!
