A beautiful and lacey shawlette worked at a loose gauge for a
wonderful drape. Named for the Daphnaie, nymphs of the laurel tree, in Greek Mythology. Varying lace and leaf patterns echo the forest where the nymphs dance around their trees and the leaves they adorn themselves with.

This shawlette is worked from the neck down beginning with a provisionally cast on garter stitch tab. Four increases are made every right side row. In the Edge Set Up section the center panel is decreased down to a single center stitch. To increase the size of the shawlette, additional repeats of the Main Body section may be worked and additional rows are given for the edge pattern. Both written and charted instructions are included.

Additional Materials:
