TheUnderworldshawlette is worked from the center wingspan out and down. Cast on begins with a small number of stitches and ends with the longest row. During thefirst half of the shawlette increases are placed at the ends of each row and in the center on the right side. Once the second half of the pattern is established only theincreases at the beginning and end of the row are actually shaping the piece. The increases that are spaced across the rows are what will later become dropped stitches.
AlthoughUnderworldis the third shawl in the Mythos Collection, it was actually the first design I planned. I had been experimenting with adding beads to a drop stitchedge and this simple tattered and torn look was perfect for a design associated with the lower realm.

I started crocheting as part of my homeschool program around age 9. Knitting got added much later on after I graduated college. I pretty much immediately started with knitwear design and launched FiddleKnits.com
