This shawl is knitted from tip to tip, so it’s easy to adjust the width. Knit with increases until you have at least half the yarn left to make sure you’ll have enough. Garter stitch makes the shawl reversible and double yarnovers emphasize the lace pattern. One edge is worked double so it won’t stretch out and the other is enhanced with picots. The pattern is inspired by the forest woman in Gösta Berling’s saga, although she didn’t wear a shawl.
