Paint the Town Red is a triangular shawl that is worked from the top down with increases at the edges and the center spine of the shawl. Paint the Town Red starts out with an easy lace section to warm your fingers up and then moves into a more complicated stitch pattern and finally into a border section that is knit perpendicularly to the shawl body.

I started knitting and crocheting when I was little. My Dad taught me to knit and my Mom taught me to crochet. I love doing both!
