CONSTRUCTION
Sylphe is a triangular heart-shaped shawl that is worked top-down from the center out, starting with a classic Garter Tab cast on. The eyecatching, graceful leaf and flower patterns are created by pulling loops through the fabric. The pattern provides detailed instructions, and you can also refer to the Moonstruck Knits video tutorial for additional guidance on creating Sylphe.
