Atalanta is the sassy, spunky, spurned sister in Händel's opera, Xerxes.
• A strong, simple design with a funky, almost chunky lace border
• Knit sideways in one piece – CO only a few sts, BO as few
• Turns at midpoint – this way all of a precious skein can be used
• Gauge unimportant
• Size variable – from 1-skein shawlette to generous wrap
The body is knit in plain stockinette - could be knitted in garter stitch for a completely reversible shawl.

Shown in Madelintosh Tosh Merino Light (orange, shawlette), Wollmeise Pure (green, big shawl) and Posh Sylvia DK (wrap). Suggested substitutes are shown below.
I have knitted several Asa Tricosa shawls and have always been delighted with my results. I find the pattern writing excellent, unusual elements are well explained.
