About The Pattern, In The Designer's Words
This shawl was designed as a gentle introduction to the stacked stitch technique. Panels of short row lace give the piece it’s asymmetrical look and name. This pattern is well suited for adventurous knitters who are comfortable knitting shawls, but have never tried the stacked stitch technique before. Instructions for pattern modifications and yarn substitution are included in this pattern.
