Pattern Description:

Quick to knit with just 500 yards of worsted weight yarn, this shawl is perfect for when you want a shawl without a super lacey look. Blocky leaves twine down from the center, with simple repeatable leaf motifs making up most of the knitting. The shawl is knit from the top down. Garter stitch edges the shawl to prevent curling, and the simple edging on the bottom produces subtle points.
