Pattern Details

This shawl was inspired by my trip to Glacier Bay several years ago. I found this wonderful yarn at a shop in Juneau, and after seeing the glacier, I knew exactly what to do with it. Every time I wear it, I remember my trip. The shawl is made in 3 sections: * The center portion is worked from end to end, then you bind off. *On the long edge, you pick up sts, and work the Seed Stitch curved section sideways from top to bottom. It is not bound off. * After the last row of Seed Stitch, you pick up stitches around the entire edge of the shawl and work the border perpendicularly around the outer edge. As much as I enjoy the challenge of complicated stitches and intricate patterns, sometimes there's nothing a nice as working on a simple project and taking my time to enjoy the feel of the yarn and needles in my hands. The same goes for lace patterns: sometimes I like a design that twists and turns and has different maneuvers on every row and sometimes I prefer the quiet repetition of a geometric pattern that is easy to memorize. This pattern is just right. Although it looks complicated, it is quite easy to knit! Size: 36" (91.5cm) across 16" (40.5cm) long, center back
