The Alpine Water Fern, the inspiration for this shawl, emerges from the earth with bright pink-red-salmon fronds that change to a deep glossy green with the warming spring temperatures.

This small cute shallow crescent shawl features a fern-like lace border. Worked from one end to the other and shaped with short rows, this is a fun, fast, and satisfying project. Just like its namesake the fern, it’ll adapt with you as you wear it close during the cooler days and toss it over shoulders as the temperature rises.

Please note: The lace pattern is both written and charted.
