Designed to show off a favourite skein of Fingering weight
yarn or two skeins of DK weight, Themeda is a top-down,
crescent shawl, shaped with short rows enhanced by a
delicate lace repeat. The chevron lace is inspired by the seed heads of a Native Australian grass species: Themeda Australis. Themeda is a satisfyingly fast knit, resulting in a simple, easy to wear shawl, perfect for you or a gift.

Themeda is suitable for an adventurous beginner, a perfect introduction to short rows and lace. Both written and charted instructions are included for the lace.
