The Ramalina shawl, named for the greenish lichen, was inspired in both construction and coloring by this wonderful part of nature. The plain stockinette body lets the subtle variegation of the silk yarn used really shine.

Ramalina is a semi-circle Pi shawl worked from the top-down in one piece, starting at the neck edge with a garter stitch tab. The shawl is finished with a lace edging in the contrast color. The instructions for the lace are provided both charted and written out.

Difficulty level
This half-circle shawl is knit from the top down, starting with a garter tab cast-on. Stitches used include knit, purl, yo, m1, kfb, k3tog, a centered double decrease, and lifted-over knot stitch. This pattern is suitable for the intermediate to advanced knitter.
