Miriam Felton Vinca Shawl PDF
The Vinca Shawl from Miriam Felton combines the best aspects of triangular shawls with the long, elegant wings of a rectangular stole. It's easy to wear with clean and lovely lines, and stays put on your shoulders due to the unique shape. This shawl is worked in a square from the center outward in a counterpane construction until the desired size from neck to bottom point is achieved, then two sides of the square are bound off, leaving the remaining two sides with live stitches to form the wings. Lace patterns are both charted and written out.
