Thistle and Nettle Shawl
The Thistle and Nettle Shawl pattern comes with written instructions and charts and has been professionally tech edited and test knit for accuracy. The Thistle and Nettle Shawl is traditional triangle shawl knit from the neck to the long edge. The Thistle and Nettle Shawl has a knit-on border which means it’s not necessary to bind off 205+ stitches at once! The bold knit-on edging is worked back and forth over 31 stitches and a k2tog with the main body stitches every other row eliminates the large bind off stitch by stitch. This is a great shawl for beginning Lace Knitters.
