Herbivore is a shawl named after the plant-like structures within the fabric. Increases at each edge and at three other locations create the unique shape, while twisted stitches branch out from those increases.

This pattern uses about 430 yds of a fingering weight yarn and would look great in solid as well as variegated and semi-solid yarns.

This pattern is also available in Westknits Bestknits 3 - Shawl Evolution. If you download this pattern from the Westknits Bestknits e-book, the yarn and color information may be slightly altered to reflect the samples photographed in the book, but the instructions remain the same.

The new updated version from Westknits Bestknits 3 book features a larger size with two skeins of 100g sport weight yarn.
