The name of this shawlette is inspired by the turret-shaped edging and by an entertaining novel I recently read, called "I Capture the Castle" by Dodie Smith.
The edging is knit at the same time as the body. Skill level is advanced beginner--many rows are simple garter stitch, i.e., just using the knit stitch, but you will also have opportunities to yarn over and k2tog. Directions for an optional cable cast-on are given in the pattern.
For one of the samples shown, I used Hearthside Fibers BaaBoo, color: Galway Bay. Each skein has 438 yards, and I had a little left over.
You can easily make the shawl larger by using more yarn and doing more repeats, and/or using heavier weight yarn.
Materials needed: 438 yards of fingering weight yarn #4 needles or size to get gauge Stitch marker
Finished Size: 13 inches at widest point, 50 inches long.
