Notes From the Designer:

Nautile, which is French for nautilus, is a semi-circular, spiral wedge shawl that features repeating sections of eyelet lace and reverse stockinette stitch. The contrasting textures of these two stitch patterns, which alternate across five wedges, mimic the curves of a nautilus shell. The nautilus shell is a beautiful symbol of life, internal harmony, creation, and evolution that also conforms to the sacred geometry of the Golden Mean, which appears throughout nature and art.

Nautile is knitted flat, and each of the five wedges is constructed by adding one stitch at the beginning of each wedge on all right-side rows. The wedges grow evenly and radiate out from your centrally placed cast-on point. Once you’ve cast on and completed the eight set-up rows, you’ll repeat a four-row stitch pattern that makes up the remainder of the shawl. This all-over design allows the Pearlescent Worsted yarn’s shimmer and shine to take center stage.
