Evocative lace and luxurious drape turn Melanie Berg’s Rainshadow into an exquisite accessory — both to wear, and to knit. The lace pattern is worked in stripes throughout the asymmetrical triangle shawl’s garter stitch body, with a band of lace at the bind-off edge creating a scalloped effect. The contrast color section is worked entirely in lace, too. Choose the perfect combination of rainy, shadowy hand-dyed yarns to suit your mood. The lace pattern is charted and written out.
