~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hither Hills is a generously sized, asymmetrical triangular shawl. Using 3 colors of fingering weight yarn, the bold striped garter is balanced with feminine lace. The shawl is worked from the tip to the opposite wide edge using 3 colors. Named for one of my very favorite places on Long Island, Hither Hills is a park that offers camping by the ocean. It’s quite the experience!

The lace pattern is both written and charted.
