  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This arched shawl begins at the center with only a few stitches while yarn over increases quickly expand the shape. Seed stitch short row wedges add length to one side forming rays that gradually increase in size. Built in I-cord edges and an I-cord bind off outline the entire shape for a clean finish. The sample shows one continuous strand of mohair/silk lace weight held together with fingering weight yarns for a captivating marled effect. The mohair is held throughout the entire project, adding a fuzzy filter to the color pops.
