Worked all in one piece, Asymmetrical Bluebells is a long shallow triangular shawl, with a simple sawtooth edging all along one edge, and a smattering of stylized flower motifs scattered across a garter stitch background.

The long triangular shape makes it perfect for draping across the shoulders as a shawl, or wrapping around the neck as a scarf. This shawl begins by casting on 3 stitches at one end, and is then worked side to side, with one increase every 6th row along one edge.

Originally knit & shown in handspun, Malabrigo sock (2 skeins) makes a wonderful substitute.
