“The Walk Together” is a deep crescent shawl designed with love and friendship as themes. This shawl with its fuchsia leaf lace border is an ode to those precious moments of togetherness, of friendship, of love, as you walk along the beach, as you speak silent words, as you laugh out loud, as you watch the sunset together, as you enjoy the cozy warmth of a bonfire or gaze at the night sky. Knit this shawl to celebrate and savor such moments, wear it on those special evenings or nights, or gift one to those special people in your life.

The shawl is knit top down beginning with a garter tab, followed by a stockinette section. The deep crescent shaping is achieved by strategically placed yarnover, kyok and lifted increases. Finally, the fuchsia leaf lace is attached as a knitted on border. The shawl is knit in one size, but is customizable to smaller/larger sizes by decreasing or increasing the final stitch counts and accordingly varying the lace repeats.
