A lace pattern gives a lovely rippled effect on the edging, with cosy garter stitch creating the crescent shape of this pretty shawl.

Twiss starts out as a rectangle knitted sideways before stitches are picked up along the straight edge and a combination of short rows and decreases are worked to shape the shawl. Using 3 balls of Cumulus by Fyberspates, this shawl is worked on size 3.25mm needles to really accentuate the delicate loft of Cumulus that is the result of 74% Baby Suri Alpaca and 26% Silk.

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the lace sections which repeat enough that a novice lace knitter would enjoy this as well as providing something quick and interesting for the more experienced knitter.
