The inspiration for this shawl suddenly came one evening while just trying on different necklaces for an out-door wedding that required me to drape a lace wrap that would show-off my necklace with a pendant.
A semi-circular shawl slowly evolved with this inspiration. It is knit in two colors, main and contrasting, and in sections with increases made on either RS or WS rows. 7 sections complete the shawl with 3 of them showing oval, round, heart shaped and diamond pendants. Pattern includes both written instructions and clear charts.
I chose two patterns from my small collection of Japanese stitch dictionaries and incorporated them into this pattern.
