“Dynamic lace adorns the wings of the White Owl Shawl. A large scale and slinky silk make a luxurious summer accessory.”

Constructions notes:

  • Stitches are cast on for the lower edge of the shawl, then a triangle is worked over some of the cast-on stitches at the left edge of the shawl; this triangle uses more of the cast-on stitches as it gets bigger by working successively longer short rows.
  • After the left triangle is complete, similar triangle is worked at the right edge of the shawl.
  • The center section is then worked over all of the stitches. This section finishes the left and right triangles, has a center column of leaves, and has a triangle between the leaves and the left and right triangles.
  • There is a small section at the nape of the neck to finish the shawl.
