Ysolda Damson PDF
Damson is a simple, pretty little shawl that’s fun to knit and easy to wear that requires just one skein of sock yarn. Working two columns of paired yarn over increases that radiate from the center neck cast-on creates a curved shape that drapes perfectly around your shoulders. Increasing at the edges on both right and wrong side rows creates long points that also make Damson perfect to wear as a scarf. The large scale of the lace creates a dramatic scalloped edge, finished with a deceptively simple looped edging. Lace patterns are both charted and written out.
