Pattern Description:

I was once lucky enough to go on an Alaskan cruise where experienced the beauty of Alaska's towns, rainforest and glaciers, and of course, I also went whale-watching. On one whale-watching tour, our guide identified a large humpback whale, well-known to locals as Flame, by the unique patterning of her fluke. Since the lace pattern of this shawl resembles the shape of whale's tale and the sample is worked in a wonderful shade of crimson, I thought it appropriate to name it after Flame.

This crescent shawl is worked top-down in one piece and shaped with short rows and edge bind-offs. I designed the patterning to be reversible, so it'll be attractive no matter how you choose to wear it. The twisted decreases used to form the lace pattern may be a newer technique for most knitters. However, with some patience and care, you will surely be rewarded with your end result.
