This arched shawl is constructed using three simple stitch patterns, stockinette, reverse stockinette, and seed stitch, making it a completely reversible design. The different stitch patterns give a textural patchwork effect, highlighting the beautiful yarn from A Verb For Keeping Warm. New increases are introduced in each of the three sections to create a unique shape, which easily drapes across the shoulders.
This pattern was originally created for the 1st shipment of A Verb for Keeping Warm’s Pro-Verbial Club 2010-11. It is now available an individual download to the public.
