Snuggle down in a warm woolen triangle of botanical lace. Juneberry can be worked in a sport- or DK-weight yarn to yield a wingspan of 48″ or in worsted weight Shelter for a 60″ shawl. The knitting begins with a provisional cast-on of a few stitches at the center top; increases at the center spine and edges form the triangle shape. In the traditional Shetland style, a wide knitted-on edging unites with the live stitches at the perimeter for an elastic and seamless finish. Juneberry is worked from charted instructions, some of which require lace maneuvers on both sides of the work. If you prefer not to work bobbles, simply replace them with a single stockinette stitch.
