I love the details. The way things go together, the little bits and pieces that make a beautiful whole. And I’m in love with this new pattern.

Poe is the last of the Seven Sonnets. I was shocked, shocked I tell you, to find that no one had used the name Poe for a pattern. But hey, more goodness for me. When I received this gorgeous Breathless yarn from Shalimar Yarns I immediately thought of the dark poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. Specifically The Raven. I’ve always loved all his work, and I was so pleased the wings of this shawlette worked out just as I envisioned.


It has a shallow crescent/half-circle shape, achieved by working top-down – no short-rows involved. It does have a lot of cables though. If you don’t know how to cable without a cable needle, I would highly suggest you try it out – it will make this project go so much faster.


Poe is now available on Ravelry as and individual download or as the final of the Seven Sonnets. So if you were waiting to see all seven before you committed – now’s your time. All Seven Sonnets are published and available.


Needles: Size 7 needles (4.5 mm)

Yarn: Breathless in the Byzantium colorway by Shalimar Yarns, 420 yards to 100g, fingering weight

Gauge: 18 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in blocked stockinette

Size: Approximately 70″ wide and 17″ deep

Poe is available to purchase individually for $6.00 USD

Or as part of the Seven Sonnets for $21.95

    This is such a beautiful design! I love the lace panel in the center. It looks fantastic in Byzantium!

    This one is gorgeous. They all are, of course, but the yarn just makes this one pop. I wish I wasn’t all shawled out for now, but at some point I definitely need to make it!
