Oolong conjures up an atmosphere of timeless elegance with its beautiful lace and mock cable edgings captured in tea-dyed yarn. This is a shawl to wrap around you as you sip tea, wander through the garden, immerse yourself in a gothic novel, or just enjoy the fading light of the day.
The bottom edging is worked first and then stitches are picked up along the side to create the body. An elongated crescent shape is created through the use of German short rows. Finally, the shawl is finished with a mock cable edge knit onto the top edge as the shawl is cast off.
Both written and charted instructions are included in the pattern.
A truly beautiful shawl that only requires two ends to be weaved in.
