Lovely lace and lots of leaves make this top-down half-circle shawl a beautiful accessory to wear and a fun project to knit. The pattern offers a variety of charts to work, yet they are easy to memorize; the shawl looks more intricate than it really is. Wrong-side rows are always purled. The pattern contains both charted and written out instructions.
