The Tree of Life in Summer Fichu is a crescent-shaped shawl with elongated “wings” which help it sit securely on your shoulders. The shawl is cast on at the neck edge and worked downwards, culminating in a 5½“-wide sideways lace border which is joined progressively to the live stitches along the bottom edge of the shawl. No sewing is required. Increases are worked along the front and sides of the shawl to avoid a pronounced triangle point at the center back.

The design shows the Tree in summer surrounded by flowers and edged with leaves. This fichu is the first in a series of fichus depicting the Tree of Life through the seasons.

The 5 page PDF contains charts for the border lace, the entire body of the shawl and color photographs.
