Counterbalance: a weight or force that balances or offsets another.

This knit is a study in simple poise. Each side perfectly complements the other, creating a fully reversible shawl with a delightful balance of knit and purl, lace and texture, curves and angles. Quick, straightforward, and adjustable, this shawl will keep you in perfect equilibrium.

This pattern is presented in both written and charted formats, and requires only fairly basic lace stitches and increases. The pattern also includes instructions for adjusting the shawl to a wide range of sizes. And because of the unique combination of stitches used in this pattern, it works very well for yarn that’s too variegated for regular lace shawls!
