Will your next shawl be bottom-up or top-down? I couldn’t decide either, so I designed Dewdrops, a shawl that incorporates both.

First, a centre triangle with simple eyelet patterning is knitted from the bottom up and bound off. Then, stitches are picked up for a lace rib border that is knitted from the top down with a contrasting colour. Each side of the lace rib has a beautiful and slightly different look.

Dewdrops was designed with speckled and slightly variegated yarns mind, and the centre triangle with its droplet pattern is especially well-suited for them. Match that with a more solid colourway for the border, and you’ve got a beautiful shawl.

La Bien Aimée Merino Singles (100% Merino; 366 m / 400 yds per 100 g). Shown in colours Interstellar (C1) and Nebula (C2).

NOTIONS
2 stitch markers

NEEDLE
Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain pattern gauge. Gauge affects finished size and yardage.

This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
