The Lamp (Shawl)

A shawl and cowl inspired by the whalemen’s quarters below the Pequod’s deck.

The Lamp can be worked as either a cowl or a shawl (the pattern includes instructions for both), with either a garter stitch edging, which is worked as part of the main panel, or a simple crochet edging, which is worked after the main panel is complete.
