Inspired by the water dripping off the rocks on Weeping Rock trail at Zion National Park. This shawl was the LA Yarn Crawl pattern given to those visiting Abuelita’s Knitting and Needlepoint.

The garter stitch center transitions into a garter stitch lace making this shawl fully reversible. Optional irregular stripes blend the colors of the variegated garter stitch into the lace edging. The lace is written and charted. The pattern includes a row chart including the percentage complete and stitch counts.

This was a free pattern to those who visited Abuelita’s Knitting and Needlepoint during the LA Yarn Crawl.

This pattern has been professionally tech edited.
