Notes

The term “Liana” describes rooted vines that grow vertically from the forest floor, up existing trees to reach well lit areas of the canopy. They help support young trees against strong winds and provide useful access routes for the forests primates.

This shawl features a seed stitch lattice pattern that is flanked by lacework chevrons on either side. This shawl is cast on width wise and is worked length wise. The pattern itself comes in both a chart and a written form. The lattice and chevron pattern is a 12 stitch repeat that is easy to see and understand. I found myself looking at each line of the pattern once, then being able to work the rest of the row from memory. When blocked, the chevrons lay flat and the seed stitch lattice eases. This leads to a nice drape effect for the shawl without compromising warmth.

Moonshine was a luxurious yarn to work with. Its blend of alpaca, wool, and silk make for a smooth and silky fabric. The yarn glides on and off the needles and is a joy to work with.
