My lifelong love for trees led me to design this shawl.
Stranded knitting creates three growing tree trunks, followed by a big leafy in full bloom, textured tree top. For the wing of the shawl, stitches get picked up on the sides of tree and get worked on the bias into a different direction and therefore creates a v-shape, hugging your body.
The yarn used lends a very organic look and feel. The pattern is written and charted for your knitting pleasure.
The shawl was test knitted and thank you so much Test Knitters!
