Pattern Description:

Blight is a top down triangle shawl that is knit in one piece. It is a perfect one-skein project for fingering weight yarn.
The lace motif is somewhat inspired by the patterns of decay in nature - that beauty can be found anywhere, and that when it feels that nothing is left - there is still some room for hope (represented by tiny flowers in the edging).

The shawl can be made bigger or smaller by knitting more or less repeats of Chart B (additional yarn will be necessary if making it larger). The size can also be changed by changing yarn/needle size, (In lace weight yarn on 5s, DK weight on 8s, etc).

This pattern is fully charted. Experience knitting from charts is necessary.
