Laura Chau Leonarda PDF
The Leonarda Shawl from Laura Chau is an elegant and fun accessory featuring Elongated Garter Stitch and an unusual drop-stitch twist pattern. Perfect for wrapping around your neck or over your shoulders - and for knitting up that skein or two of special sock yarn! Three different size and shape options so you can find the perfect fit. The Scarf and Shawl are worked from the top down, in a modified triangular shape with extra-long points for wrapping. The Stole is worked sideways by casting on for the length of the piece and can be turned into an infinity scarf by sewing short ends together.
