This is a beautiful yet simple design that features a linen stitch pattern on one side and on the other side the stitch pattern looks similar to seed stitch making the shawl reversible. The edging is a slip stitch rib that blends nicely very nicely with the main stitch. This shawl is knit flat using a circular needle, there are written directions. The sample for this shawl was knit in worsted weight yarn but you could knit it using any size yarn or needles.
