Pattern Details

The challenge was to create a curved shawl knit sideways so it could incorporate the lovely lace motif I had encountered when I made the Amaranth Headband. The shawl uses 1 full skein for the main color, and less than half of the lace color. This shawl is knit sideways from one point increasing toward the widest part at center, and then decreasing again toward the opposite point. This is a weight-based pattern in order to get the most out of the main color skein of yarn.
