The Spirit of the Lake shawl was inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s poem, “Mist.” The shawl’s construction is simple: it begins at the tip and is knitted to the upper edge. Increases occur on each end of every right side row so that the stitch pattern flows organically from tip to top without interruption. Because the shawl is worked bottom to top, its length is easily adjusted. A knitted-on edging adds complexity, but the shawl looks lovely without it--just make sure you block it carefully for even edges. The instructions are charted, with supplementary explanations and designer tips included.
