Inspired by the structure of feathers, the chevrons representing thebranches or barbs of a feather, the Nardoo Shawl is an asymmetrical triangular shawl, featuring a geometric zigzag eyelet lace design. Worked from the left tip, stitches are increased along the bottom edge, creating points along this edge, with the bind off edge forming the right side. This construction allows for easy customization according to your yardage or desired finished size. This is a simple project, suitable for an advanced beginner.
