“Tilting diagonal bands radiate from the center of this square first in one direction, then the other, through the border. Paired eyelets separate bands of stockinette stitch and moss stitch, with leaves sprouting from the border to create an edge in soft contrast to the clean geometric lines. Sweet, simple, and quick to work up, this shawl would make an equally wonderful baby blanket.”− Leila Raven

Shawl is worked in the round, beginning from the center and increasing outward.
