This is the seventh pattern from the greenhouse knits e-book.

The e-book consists of 8 patterns: two different hats, a pair of socks, long fingerless mitts, a cardigan, a tunic, a shawl and/or scarf and a pattern for small individual leaves to use as decoration or for knitwear embellishments.

# 7 is a large triangular shawl. It is worked sideways and starts with an I-cord 4 stitches wide. The body is worked in garter stitch with delicate lacey leaves shaping the bottom edges.
The scalloped edge is formed by leaf tips that stick out. They are worked using German short rows aka double stitches.
The lace and the garter stitch body make it an easy project, but it needs your attention because of the increases and decreases that shape the shawl and the leaves.

Sizes
