Deciduous Lace Shawl #V804

On this Icelandic influenced shawl, lacy leaves change shape as they fall to the edging. Knit from the top down, the tiny leaf lace repeats over 4 rows and is easy to memorize. The broad leaf border is optional, and the narrow leaf edging ends with a crocheted chain cast-off.

Increases in the lace naturally shape the top of the triangle to curve around the shoulders. The border can be started after any 16 rows of tiny leaf lace, or the edging can be started after any 4-row repeat, making it easy to customize the size.

The shawl looks great in solid and semi-solid color yarns and can be knit in lace, fingering, and Shetland/sport/DK weights.
