Like the showy blossoms of the Sweetleaf Tree, this beautiful stole brightens the day with its delectable lace and simple construction. With the endless colour options, dreamy texture, and two size options, it’s a show stopper for every spring wardrobe.

An easy to remember two row repeat offsets at beginning of each row to create the zig zag pattern on each end of the shawl. It’s worked even to create the straight center portion. The zig zag portion looks complicated but just the beginning and end of the
rows change. Refer to the chart or written instructions when beginning and ending the RS rows and work the simple 10 stitch
repeat between.

The stitch instructions are both written and charted (see page 3) for your preference.
