Pattern Description:

I was so excited to be asked to design this shawlette, based on Barbara Walker's stitch patterns. For the main body, I chose a small, allover eyelet that would not be in competition with the self?striping nature of the Regia. Barbara's beautiful "Shower Stitch" pattern grows fluidly out of the eyelets, forming a natural border for the shawl. I've decorated the spine with a classic horseshoe cable, which widens with the change of patterning. When united, these patterns form a shawl glamorous enough for any city girl.

This 6-page PDF includes both charts and written instructions for each section of the work.

The shawl begins at the top (straight edge) with a small strip of garter stitch, from which stitches are picked up.
