This is a PDF knitting pattern.

Batty Cats is a triangular shawl, worked side to side in mosaic technique - bold and graphic, it’s not a dainty accessory! Worked in two contrasting colors, it’s sure to become the focal point of your outfit.

I had a bit of a hard time naming this one - everyone saw something else in this pattern, I saw bats and cats so here it is - Batty Cats!

Mosaic technique means you are only knitting with one color per row - the pattern is charted ONLY. But no worry - full instructions how to work the charts are included to have you going in no time! Because this is garter based mosaic, there is no purling! You heard me, ZERO purling:)

Modification instructions are also provided to make your shawl smaller or larger.
