On this asymmetrical, sideways knit shawl, Melanie Rice combined pretty ribbon lace with an uneven ribbing motif in our soft linen Sparrow. Think waves lapping against a shoreline grooved with tiny rivulets and ripples in the sand. The piece is worked on the bias from the right tip to the wide left edge.
