Rustwing

DESCRIPTION

Soothing garter stitch, stripes, and a striking contrast color border. Even better, a shawl that can be knitted with absolutely no purl stitches.

Rustwing is named after Phragmatobia fuliginosa, a small, unassuming moth with hindwings edged with bright orange. Starting from the upper left corner, Rustwing is knit on the bias to create an asymmetric triangle. The shawl is worked in garter stitch in three colors — two for the striped body and one for the knitted-on garter lace border.

Are you a nocturnal moth or a bright butterfly? The color combinations are limitless.

This pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the lace border.
