Garter Leaves is a crescent shaped shawl that is knit from the bottom edge to the top. Short rows are used in the center garter portion of the shawl to give it a crescent shape.
The small shawl is knit using sock yarn and makes an elegant neckerchief or cowl. The medium shawl, knit with DK weight yarn, offers a little more coverage without being too ostentatious while the large shawl (worsted weight) is a full blown knock out. I love to wear the large shawl over a winter coat or sweater in the dead of winter.
