Shown in Cabecou Lace “Meringue” (White) and Chebris Lace “Truffe” (Brown)

This airy, ethereal crescent shawl in three sizes (petite/medium/tall) begins at the hem with a dramatic border of floating leaf shapes. The entire composition is suggestive of the fragile forms of dried and pressed plant material found in a winter garden. The body of the shawl is worked in short rows of openwork mesh pattern and finished off at the neck edge with a deep shaped border of openwork organic forms. While the construction is somewhat complex, the motifs here are deceptively easy and quick to work; this is an interesting and rewarding project for the adventurous knitter.
