Sharply botanical, this asymmetrical shawl features a twisted stitch pattern that reminds me of 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.
Finished measurements: 85.5” / 214 cm wide, 25” / 65.5 cm deep
