Salad Shawl is the first shawl in the Dinner Party Collection: a collection of shawls inspired by different dishes, which together would create a yummy meal for a dinner party. Each shawl is named after a different course and each pattern includes the recipe for the dish which inspired the design. My husband loves to cook and we have decided to combine our respective talents in this collection: I create the knitting patterns and he the recipes.
Our first course is the Salad Shawl, a small triangular shawl worked from side to side, with lace on one edge and a lovely little cable on the other. The shape and points on the edge are created by casting on stitches while you knit the first half of the shawl and binding off stitches in the second half. The accompanying recipe is Brandon's Mediterranean Feta Salad recipe.
*Please note that the two sides of this shawl are not completely identical. They are close, but cast-on stitches do not look exactly the same as bound-off stitches.
