Update: June 2015 This pattern is now available with both charted and written instructions. Please update to the new version in your pattern library.
Swedish Spring is a top-down triangular shawl that begins with a subtle texture and stockinette stitch in the main body that transitions into a mesh arrow lace, and finishes with a pointy lace edging.
This pattern lends itself perfectly to that one special skein of sock yarn or other fingering weight yarns and results in a beautifully drapey fabric that is perfect for spring and transitional weather. The stockinette body provides extra warmth around your neck, while the lace edge keeps it light and airy.
Note: An additional Lace chart is now available with the purchase of this pattern if you would like to knit an additional repeat to make a larger shawl (this part has not been test-knit and I do not know how much additional yarn it will take).
