The lush fern fronds give off a dappled shade, filling the forest floor with intricate patterns. Beautiful and dainty, like the lace in this versatile shawl. The wide lace inserts are interspersed with garter stitch stripes, which create a nice rhythm to the shawl and offer a moment of rest.

Fern Fronds shawl is knitted diagonally with increases on one side and decreases on the other, creating a fun parallelogram shape. This gives the shawl a dynamic look and wonderful drape. Fern Fronds is a pleasure to knit and easy to wrap around your neck in various ways.
