Shawl of Destiny
Do you have skeins of contrasting yarn that are destined to be together, the Shawl of destiny began with a colour combination that was haunting me - they were destined to become my new favourite shawl. The triangular shape lends itself to many wearing options; scarf, shawl, kerchief style and more. The pattern is a combination of textures and colour, with satisfying garter stitch sections interspersed with geometric lace a fresh and modern combination. The lace takes some concentration and is both written and charted. Worked from the top down.
