Wheat Fields Shawl
If you love large flowing shawls, rich in texture and lace patterns, then Wheat Fields is for you. The body of the shawl is worked in sections of garter stitch, and a simple lace pattern—easy to pick up and take on the go. This section is worked three times, before reaching the border of the shawl, which is worked in a wonderfully intricate, but not difficult, eye-catching lace stitch. It’s finished off with a last go of garter stitch, and bound off with a fun picot bind-off.
A great everyday shawl to wear all year round, it’s easy to style in multiple ways: wrapped around the neck for a look that is dripping in cool or draped over the shoulders for warmth and elegance.
