Inspired by a surprise & rare find of a wild orchid in a wood near my home, this sideways knitted shawl or shawlette is a versatile knit in two different depths and two versions (elongated crescent / triangle or asymmetrical). The garter body has an i-cord top edge which is worked at the same time as the rest of the shawl and a deep lace border of a flower panel and then fagoting which forms a zigzag lower edge.
For the crescent / triangular versions, half the yarn is used before starting the decrease section and the asymmetrical one can be worked to use all the yarn, making it adaptable to different yardages.
Although examples are in 3 ply to 4 ply, it could also be made in a thicker yarn for a cosy winter wrap.
The detailed instructions are fully written as well as charted throughout & the pattern has been professionally tech edited and tested.
