The lace patterns on this shawl was inspired by the reflections of the bridges in Portland on the Willamette River. While the shape seems complex to knit but it is not - it is basically a top down triangle with a chunk taken out of it. This shape allows the shawl to sit on one’s shoulders securely without need of a shawl pin. It can easily be sized up by increasing the weight of yarn (fingering would need about 15% more and sport would need about 15% more than fingering, etc).

This shawl originally designed for a local event but alas was not selected.
