This top-down shawl is worked in a simple leaf pattern that is both easy to memorize and easy to work, making the body of the shawl a joy to knit, while the border infuses the piece with a zest that makes this an accessory you’ll reach for again and again.

Worked in a heavy fingering weight yarn, it makes a fast and satisfying project, but could be worked in a finer gauge with more repeats to give a more delicate finished piece.

A knitted-on border tutorial is offered in support of this pattern.

Instructions for making the shawl larger so that the border still works out can be found here.
