The best things about autumn are leaves that change their colour, and having a walk through them on a day with clear, blue skies. The colours of both come together in this shawl to create a cornucopia, shaped with short rows, from which a bounty of leaves spills.

Picots along the inner edge and eyelets along the outer edge add some visual interest. The lace pattern is a 12 stitch repeat and suitable for advanced beginners.

340 m/370 yds of fingering weight yarn in main colour (sample used 2 skeins of Hikoo CoBaSi in colourway 68 Curacao)
200 m/218 yds of fingering weight yarn in contrast colour (sample used 1 skein of Hikoo CoBaSi in colourway 20 chocolate milk
3.5 mm/US 4 circular needle
Optional: 8 stitch markers to mark pattern repeats in the lace section
