The indie yarn scene is a competitive industry…creative hands with passionate hearts pour their soul into their wares. Trade secrets are fiercely guarded, and as such, collaborations are not often seen.
However, strong confident women will join forces, and parade their pieces together…not as competition, but as a compliment to one another. Go forth fierce ladies…combine, collaborate, amalgamate!

Amalgamate is a shallow crescent shawlette, constructed from the top down. The pattern sees you work the body of the shawlette in garter stitch, forming a long shallow crescent.
Once a specific stitch count is reached, the dainty (but oh so simple!) lace edging is performed

This pattern has both options: charts and written translations of the charts
