Arum is a lacy, asymmetrical shawl inspired by the arrow-shaped leaves of the arum family of plants. These flowering plants, sometimes called arum lilies, feature beautiful flowers that come in a variety of colors. Warm, yet lightweight and airy, this shawl is optimal for mildly cool days. Kingston Tweed adds a touch of rustic texture.

This shawl is knit flat from the bottom up. After stitches are cast on and the pattern is established, stitches are gradually decreased ending with just two stitches. When working decreases in lace, maintain stitches in pattern as established. If there are not enough stitches to work decreases and corresponding increases in the pattern stitch, work these extra stitches in Stockinette or Reverse Stockinette instead (i.e. knit the knits and purl the purls).
