Three Sisters Shawl
This fingering-weight shawl combined both lace and cabled sections for a fun and entertaining knit. The shawl is cast on at the neckline and worked down to through the main sections, which consist of 3 triangular “corn ears” lace motifs and 2 “leaf” lace motifs forming the body. A vine cable and lace edging is knit on after the body of the shawl is completed.
You will need approximately 1200 yards of a fingering weight yarn with a nice drape that blocks well to knit this pattern.
Note that the lace patterns are presented in chart-form only.
This pattern is available as part of a print book or as a digital edition - the price is reflective of the entire 20-pattern book collection. It is not available at this time as an individual download.
Inspiration: The Three Sisters is a traditional Native American method of planting crops. The corn is planted in the center; beans are allowed to use the corn stalks as climbing trellises; and squash or pumpkin vines keep the roots of the plans cool during the hot summers in the region.
