Since I began knitting shawls I have always dreamed of a green shawl with a branched middle that ends in a full border of lace.
And here it is!

This shawl is enjoyably simple and require a minimum attention. The lace central panel is easy to remember, and by the time you reach the border you will know it by heart!

Sample is knit in:
Manos del Uruguay Fino, 70% Wool - Merino, 30% Silk, colorway Velvet Pincushion
Needles
4 mm (US size 6), 150 cm / 60” circular needles, or size to obtain correct gauge.
For the bind-off you will also need a 4.5 mm (US size 7)
