Designed for two contrasting colorways, Altitude is a crescent-shaped shawl with an extravagant lace border. The shawl begins at the back neck with just three stitches. The body features a simple lace pattern flanked by garter-stitch wings, and is suitable for both tonal and moderately variegated colorways. The all-lace border is worked along the entire length of the shawl. Frequent increases in the border allow for dramatic blocking. The complex lace is best shown in a tonal colorway.

Charts? This pattern has charts for the lace sections, but full written directions for all charts are also included.

Yarn Use: The sample used nearly all of the border color. If you are a loose knitter, consider going down a needle size on the border to conserve yarn.
