Madeleine Shawl

Shawls make great gifts, as they require no sizing, and this airy pattern knits up quick. The simple construction makes it a great project to take travelling.

Find the pattern in Vintage Modern Knits, available in store. Knit it using The Fibre Company’s Terra.

From the pattern author:

This pretty picot-edged shawl is a great traveling or weekend project. It is knitted point to point in a garter-based bias-stitch pattern that is worked simultaneously with the picot edge. The construction is simple enough for beginners and interesting enough to keep advanced knitters engrossed. The bias pattern creates a Faroese-style wing to shape to the points, which allows it to drape comfortably around the shoulders.
