Inspiration
When I look at the intricacies of the circle of life in the wild, I’m spellbound by how nature covers so many minute details. Naturally-occurring wildfires are no exception. A natural disturbance creates the opportunity for a habitat to be reborn, like a phoenix rising from the ashes. It helps speed the return of nutrients to the earth
from dead and decaying plant matter, giving new plants a better chance to survive the difficult conditions in the understory. It gives smaller trees a chance for more sunlight and native species of plants in the understory a chance to re-establish.
The story of wildfires gives hope that even when our own habitat seems to be crumbling around us, that we may rebuild with the strongest pieces that withstood the flames.

Construction Notes : See Schematic for Reference
This shawl utilizes a garter tab cast on and is worked from the top down.

Shaping increases are placed twice on right side rows and four times on wrong side rows resulting in a crescent shape.

A reverse garter stitch section at the top and bottom of the lace border visually separates the lace from the cable section.

A Russian bind off is used on the wrong side to result in a clean reverse garter edge.
