This pattern is also available as part of my new e-book Espiral: a progressive Eco-friendly e-book 5 original shawl designs + 1 bonus pattern (also a shawl design).

Oliva is a sweet asymmetrical shawl, knitted bias in one piece, totally seamless. It starts with a few stitches that gradually increase in number. The main body is worked in garter stitch with a lovely lace detail in the inner edging.

Pattern is very flexible and size is easily adjustable – when you achieve the desired length, simply work the picot bind-off. As shown used 357.2m (390.6 yds) of Abuelita Yarns Merino fingering weight
