Product Description

This romantic shawl is knit from the top-center in garter stitch, followed by a slipped stitch border, and finished off with a picot bind off. You may choose any color combination that your heart desires for the slipped stitch border. The sample shown used Madelinetosh Pashmina. We suggest The Periwinkle Sheep Sport Wolle (100% merino wool; 328 yds/ 100g). The shawl is worked from the top-center down. Double yarn overs help make the top edge stretchy and comfortable to wear against your neck. On the WS rows, knit only the first YO and drop the second.

About the artisan

Melanie Berg

​I’m Melanie and in my real life I’m a former IT specialist, mother of three and a semi-successful housewife. In my secret second life I design knitwear.

I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I spend my time combining colors, shapes and textures into freewheeling designs that are uniquely my own. I’ve been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small, and I’ve also self-published my own patterns and e-books. I love collaborating with creative types from all over the world.
