Adorn yourself with this beautiful shawl to lift your spirits. Elemental Things is a semicircular shawl with two different lace patterns interspersed with sections of garter and stockinette stitch. The jaunty ruffle at the edge helps it to sit beautifully whether worn draped over your shoulders or wrapped around your neck. The lace patterns are easy to memorise making this a perfect project for beginner lace knitters.

“Our minds, as well as our bodies, have need of the out-of-doors.
Our spirits, too, need simple things, elemental things, the sun
and the wind and the rain, moonlight and starlight, sunrise and
mist and mossy forest trails, the perfumes of dawn and the smell
of fresh-turned earth and the ancient music of wind among the
trees.” - Edwin Way Teale
