Damson is also available as part of the collection Whimsical Little Knits Book 2

Damson is a pretty, simple little shawl, requiring
just one skein of sock yarn, that’s fun to knit and
easy to wear. Working two columns of paired yarn
over increases that radiate from the centre neck
cast on creates a curved shape that drapes perfectly around your shoulders. Increasing at the edges on both right and wrong side rows creates long points that also make Damson perfect to wear as a scarf. The large scale of the lace creates a dramatic scalloped edge, finished with a deceptively simple looped edging.

The pattern includes both written and charted directions.
