Aspen Leaf Shawl
A flutter of leaves encircles the Aspen Leaf Shawl. The unique top edge bands create an attractive frame from which the leaves cascade gracefully down the shoulders.
The shawl begins with a leaf motif at the centre top, from which stitches are picked up to work the shawl body. “Pi” method increases give a semi-circular shape. The shawl is finished with a crochet chain cast off, explained in detail. This is a combination garter and stocking stitch shawl with lace shaping on right-side rows only. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Intermediate lace knitters.
