Product description

This distinctive shawl, printed all over with triangles of garter stitch, can be worked in two weights. Knit a breezy complement to summer dresses in Vale or a slightly larger triangle with comforting weight and warmth in Arbor. The arrowhead lace edging combines garter stitch and eyelets to achieve a flintknapped texture. The pattern teaches the Icelandic Bind Off technique to yield an elastic edge that partners effectively with garter stitch.
