Mountain Grove -- PDF knitting pattern
This symmetrical shawl is worked sideways. It begins with a few stitches and grows to the middle using increases hidden in the twisted stitch pattern, then decreases to the opposite point. The increases are worked on the wrong side rows while the decreases in the second half of the shawl are worked on the right side.
Gauge is not critical for this pattern, but using a different yarn weight or needles will affect the size of the finished shawl and the amount of yarn needed.
