Fern Glade Shawl

Various fern motifs from Shetland to traditional lace combine in the delicate Fern Glade shawl, worked in garter and stocking stitch. At the top, small motifs like little fiddleheads grow to become graceful fern fronds. A traditional Snail Shell edging finishes the shawl in a fanciful nod to the snails we see on dewy ferns in the morning.

The shawl is worked by casting on three stitches at the middle top, then increasing at the sides and middle to create a triangular shape. It is finished with a lace edging worked sideways and attached to the live stitches of the shawl to bind it off. Some lace patterns have lace shaping on every row. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Advanced Intermediate or Experienced lace knitters.
