Sharply botanical, this asymmetrical shawl features a twisted stitch pattern that evokes the slender, twining sepals of wild spray roses.
Worked end to end and then rotated, Sepal’s asymmetrical shape is bordered on one side by a dramatic rib that’s deepest at the peak. On the other side, a slipped I-cord edge keeps things tidy.
Sepal is worked in an asymmetrical triangle from end to end, and then turned 90 degrees. Stitches are picked up and worked in rib along the diagonal edges.
85.5 inches / 214 cm long; 19 inches / 47.5 cm deep in Fractured Lattice Stitch, ribbing is 6 inches / 15 cm deep at peak.
