This shawl … features an all-over pattern of large, triangular leaves spreading out from a central “spine”. The effect is very striking, particularly when worked in this delicious shade blue of Jamieson & Smith Shetland Heritage yarn, which provides excellent stitch definition and a beautiful fabric. A simple edging is finished with a stretchy yarnover cast-off that helps the scalloped points to be pinned out more easily during the blocking process.
