Alvo is an easy triangular shawl worked from the center back downwards to the edging. The body is knitted in a pretty lace st pattern resembling flowers, branches and hearts. The edge has a simple, yet dramatic effect due to the scallop stitch. I think this works beautifully as a wedding shawl too.
The pattern is both written and charted.
Skills required: garter tab cast on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, basic lace knowledge, stretchy bind-off (explained in the pattern).
