Suitable for knitters of all skill levels, Hyla Brook is completely reversible. Knitted with just two skeins of Quince & Co Tern, (75% wool/25% silk), it has just the right amount of drape. The light ruffle gives a hint of romance and directions are given for an alternative garter stitch border.

The shawl can easily be sized by adding more bands of mesh lace. A marker system will help you knit the shawl with a minimal amount of counting of long rows.

Errata: (Corrected July 19, 2012 so if you purchased your pattern after this date then you have the correct version)
on the last row of the Garter Panel section, it should read K3, pm for lace, etc….knit to last 3 sts, pm for lace, k3

Hyla are the small tree frogs, also known as spring peepers, that sing along Oak Creek in the early spring evenings. The hyla song is described as the sound of sleigh bells.
