Accola is a lovely semi-circular shawl with lace center panel and borders from Nelkin Design. This shawl is knitted from the bottom up, starting with the lace border. After the border is completed, you pick up stitches all the way along it’s edge and then start to work the body of the shawl. The shawl is written for two weights of yarn and two sizes. The instructions include written translations of some of the charts, but not all of them.
