Arundhati Shawl by Andrea Rangel
This lightweight asymmetrical shawl can be wrapped up cozily around the neck on chilly days or worn as an open, airy layer over a summer dress to show off its pretty alternating bands of garter stitch and lace. The piece is worked flat from its wide base and diminishes in stitch count to a narrow point at the other end with decreases along one side. The slanted side becomes the top edge when worn, so that the patterned stripes are presented at an angle. Knit in a light, wooly yarn, this piece works with casual denim and tweeds in any season; in a light, silky yarn, it is elegant and streamlined for a dressier effect. A great first lace project or one for the traveling knitter.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
