Garter stitch and lace stripes in two colours create a gorgeous and versatile shawl. The wavy lace makes the garter stitch ripple beautifully and means you’re in for an engaging knit.
Touchstone is knitted diagonally from one corner to the opposite side creating an asymmetric triangle that drapes wonderfully. Pick your favourite colours in fingering weight wool and put this shawl on your needles!
