A symmetrical (mirrored) smocked pattern composed of twisted stitches and bobbles is reminiscent of Elvish runes. This central pattern opens up into an intricate section of diamonds & leaves, before the lacy border repeats the runic pattern in openwork. this border increases in number of stitches, giving the shawl its lovely ruffled lower edge.

The pattern is charted, due to its complexity, but written directions will be available upon request. Caveat emptor: they go on for many pages

I recommend using a fingering weight yarn rather than laceweight, as this will best show off the textured nature of the stitch pattern.

This pattern is best suited to a shaded solid yarn.
