Wild Ivy Shawl
Wild Ivy Shawl is a top down shawl that includes both chart and written instructions.
For a while now I’ve been looking to design a shawl that incorporated a leaf motif in a panel section of a shawl. The result became the Wild Ivy Shawl! A column of leaves cascades down the spine of the shawl flanked by stockinette that eventually grows into a lace border reminiscent of ivy.
