The Gothic Foil Arch is elegant and strong, often over a gate or window in a wall, enticing to the promise of a secret garden inside or peering out to the forest beyond. These were the inspriation for this shawl, a structure surrounded by mystery and foilage. Welcome to the Falling Leaves shawl!
This is a pattern for a triangular shawl. It is worked from the top down. There are about 600 beads beginning in Clue 2 and 4 rows with, optional, nupps. 3 skeins are recommended for the large size triangle, but can vary with knitting style (2 skeins may be enough on 3.5mm needles) - you know yourself best!
** info on yardage: I used 204 grams of Fairy Silk Sock, on 3.5 mm needles, and gauge of: 24 sts x 34 rows = 4”/10cm unblocked stockinette, for the 2 panel triangle shape.
Triangle (2 panel) - me: 890yrds/812m, trusty test knitter: 874 yrds/800m
3/4 square (3 panel) - 1203 yrds/1100m

This shawl may also be worked as a 3/4 square or full square, add more yarn, more beads, and one/two more panels as you knit!
This pattern is fully written for the triangle and the charts are the panel only. In the hope to save a bit of paper, WS rows are not shown as, all even (WS) rows are worked as - K2, p to last 2 sts, k2, unless noted.
