One direction reveals flowers, the other direction turns those flowers on their heads and transforms them into little Eiffel Towers.

This pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit.

Construction Notes
An asymmetrical triangle once blocked, this shawl begins with a garter tab cast on (full instructions provided), and grows until you are ready to start the garter stitch border.

This pattern is easily adjustable to use with different yarn weights (just work more or fewer repeats of the lace as desired, and start the garter border when you’re ready).

Best suited to a solid or semi solid yarn, the shawl is easily wearable for a variety of occasions.
