A pretty, delicate shawl worked from the bottom up. The lace and cable patterned edging are worked sideways first, and then stitches are picked up along one edge for the centre. Yarn overs worked along the edge make picking up stitches easy. The centre is worked in towards the centre top, and shaped with both decreases at the edges and short row wedges. The short rows create a very shallow crescent shape that’s easy to wear as a scarf or wrap. This shape makes the most of a single skein of yarn, which can often result in shawlettes that aren’t quite long enough to really wrap around the neck.
