A friend challenged me to push my designing skills: a semi-circular shawl with only textured stitches - knit and purl, no lace, no cables. The name is a tribute to her work with people who suffer from Alzheimers, as they are often attracted to different textures.

This semi-circular shawl is worked with an applied icord edging, increases are worked in sections, rather than every row and pattern is both written and charted.

Using one hank of solid, or semi-solid fingering weight yarn will show off the texture to it’s best advantage.

Size: 39” x 13” 100 cm x 33 cm
