Recreated Openwork

This pattern is available for free.

A little over a year ago, a friend showed me a shawl made by her aunt. The aunt had passed away, but the shawl remained. It was an interesting stitch pattern that she wanted recreated in order to pass in on to others. I was able to recreate the stitch from pictures. It is very reminiscent of spiders, but not exactly the same. The following is the stitch pattern that I came up with. I have written it out for a scarf, but it could easily be turned into a full size wrap. For something completely different, add buttons along one of the short sides, do fewer repeats and make it into a button-up cowl/neckwarmer.

The scarf would be a wonderful teacher’s gift for the holidays. A full-size stole would be a lovely wrap for those special events and holiday get-togethers.
