In this contemporary twist on the traditional wedding shawl you’ll find vintage style, but with a modern touch. The unique construction, simple seed stitch, and pretty flowers all add up to an elegant, yet playful garment that can be worn any time of the year to dress up a casual look or provide the perfect polish to more refined attire.

An unconventionally knit and shaped asymmetrical crescent shawl, Nancy is clever and interesting, yet easily knit. Cast on from one corner and knit across to a long edge, it contrasts textures using both a basic seed stitch and simple floral lace. With optional beads and an optional picot bind-off, make it as simple or ornate as your taste desires.

This pattern includes both written instructions and full charts.
