This shawl combines two different stitch patterns to create a fabric that reminds me of rain falling on water. Short row wedges and a wavy edge add to the watery feel, while the double yarn overs in the mesh pattern mimic thousands of raindrops.

The pattern includes complete written directions and a small chart for the lace pattern. Directions are also given for increasing the size.

Notes
German Short Rows are used to shape the wedge
sections. A “double stitch” is made to hide the short
row turns; the double stitch is then worked as a single
stitch on the following row.
All full rows are numbered sequentially, but the odd and
even numbers do not correspond to RS and WS. When
changing colors two RS rows, or two WS rows will be
worked one after the other by sliding the stitches to the
other end of the needle and working the row with the
yarn hanging there. Carry the color not in use up the
side of the work, twisting it around the working yarn at the beginning of the rows.
Knit Purl Hunter demonstrates carrying yarn up the side in this video:
