ZEN YARN GARDEN
Bacchus Shawl PDF
The Bacchus Shawl from Zen Yarn Garden is a bottom-up crescent-shaped shawl with a lace border, garter stitch body and an eyelet edging. The traditional Estonian lace nupps are reminiscent of grape clusters and the shawl is named after Bacchus (a.k.a. Dionysus) who was the Greek God of wine in Greek mythology. This pattern has charts & written instructions and features nupp stitches and yarn over twice stitches. If you prefer not to work nupps, you could certainly add beads by knitting the nupp stitches and adding a bead.
