The Palouse Dogwood Wrap is a sophisticated texture-filled shawl that is a delight both to knit and wear. Designed to reflect both the gentle rolling hills of the Palouse region of the Pacific Northwest along with the pale pinks of spring-blooming dogwoods, you’ll love wrapping Palouse Dogwood around your shoulders!

This rectangular shawl is worked from the center outward to each end beginning with a provisional CO and knotted openwork panel. The stitch pattern mirrors itself from top to bottom and side to side (other than the graceful cable border surrounding the entire wrap). So much to keep a knitter’s interest with loads of texture, simple cables, and a wee bit of lace!
