The garter stitch wings of the Geode Shawl frame the intricate (but easy to work) central diamond lace panel much like the rocky shell of a geode frames the sparkling crystal inside.

Geode is a top-down crescent-shaped shawl which starts with a garter stitch tab and is finished with a simple eyelet edging. The size of the shawl is easily adapted by working more or fewer repeats of the body section. The crescent shape makes the shawl easy to wear in a number of ways: draped over shoulders, bandana-style or somewhere between the two.
