Darling Buds shoulder shawl
Tightly closed buds swell and grow fuzzy before bursting into glorious leaf in this small triangular shawl, which works up quickly in worsted-weight yarn. Featuring a tab cast-on with a decorative edging and spine, twisted stitches, and double yarnovers, the airy columnar edging is worked on both sides. Inset leaves add a finishing touch and a slight flare to the edging.
Suitable for adventurous beginner to intermediate knitters.
Gauge: 18 sts and 24 rows per 10cm in stockinette give a finished shawl of approx 180cm tip to tip. You can make a bigger shawl by a) using a larger needle/thicker yarn.
