Fallen Leaves is a warm and cosy shawl with beautiful allover lace. The stockinette stitch base highlights the textural details of the lace.

You work Fallen Leaves diagonally from one tip to the opposite edge, creating a slightly asymmetric triangle.

The size is easy to adjust, so you can make your shawl as big or small as you want. Simply cast on and get lost in the relaxing rhythm of the lace.

5 skeins of mYak Baby Yak Medium (100% Baby Yak; 117 m / 128 yds per 50 g). Shown in colourway Dusty Pink.

Or approximately 526 m / 575 yds of similar light worsted weight yarn.

Size 5 mm / US 8 circular needle or size to obtain pattern gauge

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