Description

This dramatic triangle shawl is worked from neck to hem in a mix of mesh openwork entwined with ever increasing leaf and vine motifs. While visually complex, the stitchwork consists of simple increases and decreases, with wrong side rows all in purl; this project is a relaxing knit that is intriguing but not overly challenging to work (and surprisingly fast to knit!). Pattern can be worked in a fine lace yarn to create a delicate fabric or heavy lace and light fingering yarn for one that is more substantial. This piece would make a gorgeous wedding shawl.
