Dalenni in Welsh means ‘leaves’ or ‘foliage’, which is a fitting description of the shawl. It has interesting elements on both sides, cascading leaves on the right side and meandering lines on the reverse. The overall pattern features sculpted leaves turning in opposite directions, giving the shawl an additional surface movement.
The shawl is knitted from a center provisional cast on; the ends taper to points on opposite edges through sets of simple decreases. The project can be easily customized by choosing a different yarn and needle size - it is an ideal warmer weather accessory as a gossamer lace scarf or it can become a cozy shawl perfect for cold seasons.
This information is missing from the original magazine pattern:
Please note, only RS rows are charted. WS rows are knitted as they appear, yarn overs are always purled.
