The Mary Westmacott Shawl
This project lets you do lots of knitting on a circular needle, needs only one or two skeins of yarn, and makes a great carry around project. The stitch pattern for this shawl is easy to learn because of its strong visual nature. It utilizes sections of reverse stocking stitch to delineate each leaf pattern. The pattern is worked bottom up. It’s completely charted to make the transitions simple to follow, as each section decreases. A centre pattern panel shifts the decrease columns out from the mid-way point, to make this project a little prettier. Each right side row shortens by 4 stitches, making the work feel as though it is speeding up the closer you get to the end.
