Silk Road

Through deserts dry
and mountains high,
past snow and ice
and deep blue skies,

We travel on,
starting at dawn,
on paths that take us further west,
‘cross passes high, ere we may rest.

Instructions for the shawls in the Wayfarer path are available both charted and written (line by line)

Striking top down crescent shaped shawl alternates lace sections with a garter and eyelet pattern.
The garter ridges add warmth and substance for your trip over the high mountains and the lace, inspired by snowcapped summits and frost adds an element of lightness.
All wrong side rows are rest rows, making for a relaxing yet satisfying knit.
