This generously sized, luxurious shawl is an exquisite way to add warmth and drama to any outfit. The circular flower motifs that form the back are worked in rows and are joined to adjacent motifs as they are worked. Then stitches for the garter-stitch sides are picked up along the sides of the back panel and worked as large triangles simul-taneously with a lacy edging. Wear this triangular shawl pinned, tied, or wrapped in the traditional methods, or lace the side triangles through the edges of the flower motifs on the opposite sides for a secure wrap that allows the edging to cascade down the front in beautiful drapes.
