My pleasure shawl patternPetra Breakstone
A big crescent two tone shawl, knitted top down and ever increasing with added contrasting stripes, a simple wide ribbed pattern to finally the beautiful lace border. The I-cord bind- off lends a great final textural touch, almost frames it. Truly a pleasure to knit and wear~
