Arctic Ice is an asymmetrical, triangular shawl consisting of mostly relaxing garter stitch coupled with a simple yarn over detail for most of the shawl. A simple lace pattern completes the border. The yarn is held double throughout the shawl. Thus, you will be holding one strand of Aerie Lace with one strand of Keebler Fingering. Larger-sized needles are used to give a slightly looser gauge, resulting in a shawl that is full of drape and (as the lace name says) airy; not to mention warm and cozy too!

A Stitch Count Table for section repeats is included in a separate file with this pattern. Directions are both written and charted.
