Paisley Swirl Shawl – pdf

US $11.00

pattern by Fiddlesticks Knitting

This graceful shawl falls from the shoulders in an ever-increasing swirl. It stays in place with its unusual shaping, which is more than a semi-circle and shows the paisley lace motifs to fine advantage.

The shawl is worked by casting on four stitches at the middle top, then increasing with the 'pi' method to create a semi-circular shape. Longer 'wings' are shaped with extra increases on the long top edges. It is finished with a lace edging worked sideways and attached to the live stitches of the shawl to bind it off. This is a garter stitch shawl with lace shaping on return rows.
