Canopy is another pattern inspired by the wonderful forest that surrounds my home.
When I stand in front of my kitchen’s window the only thing that I can really see is the green canopy of the pine trees that spreads accross countless of miles.
The shape and textures of this shawl pattern are a tribute to this evergreen forest.
A triangular shawl with an interesting texture that will keep you entertained one row after the other. The lace and twisted stitches remain quite simple, making the pattern very accesible to advanced-beginner knitters, and a quick knit to more skilled knitters.
The pattern features both charts and written instructions.
