I love nature and most of my designs incorporate leaf designs. In this shawl I incorporated two leaf designs. The cables in the middle are the roots that every plant needs to live, and if you want to add beads the roots have water and nutriens as well.
The shawl is worked top down and ends in a optional beaded bind off.
Instead of the regular garter stitch selvedge I used a cable.
