For accessibility this pattern book is available in my etsy shop and Payhip shop. This sweet shawlette has a sideways triangle shape, with a wide accent band of garter stitch along one side. It is very effective worked in several colors, but also looks wonderful in a single color. The main section is knit in a simple knit and purl combination that creates a beautifully textured stitch You may make the Garden larger by simply continuing to knit until it reaches the size you like.
