This semi-circular lace shawl, in alternating wedges of 2 harmonious colors, features a fluted hem and scooped neckline turned back into an asymmetric collar.

Purl lace short-row wedges, separated by spokes of garter stitch bands, gradually narrow as they encircle the shawl.

Half-note Symphony Shawl is designed to be attractive on a range sizes body types. Because of the fluid, amorphous character of the purl lace, the size of this “one size fits all” shawl can be further varied by the degree of tautness in the blocking process (from relaxed to extremely stretched).
