Elegant. Delicate. Luxurious.
The shawl ghosts across the shoulders, and triangles mirror themselves to create this geometric stitch pattern.
This is a simple rectangular shawl with a crisp clear stitch pattern, and a generous garter stitch border. Pair it with a simple black dress, and a beautiful shawl pin, to make it the epitome of understated elegance.
Knit in one piece from cast on to bind off, this pattern uses one skein of lace weight yarn to create a warm but delicate shawl, designed to stun. The vertical lines of the stitch pattern draw the eye all the way up the shawl, while the understated garter border holds it all together.
