New today, the Tree of Life in Summer Fichu! I enjoyed designing and making this one so much that I am thinking of making it the first in a series: The Tree of Life: the Four Seasons.
The Tree of Life in Summer Fichu is a crescent-shaped shawl with elongated “wings” which help it sit securely on your shoulders. The shawl is cast on at the neck edge and worked downwards, culminating in a 5½”-wide sideways lace border which is joined progressively to the live stitches along the bottom edge of the shawl. No sewing is required. Increases are worked along the front and sides of the shawl to avoid a pronounced triangle point at the center back. It uses 2 skeins of Crystal Palace Mini Mochi yarn in color 104. It's warm and toasty and very soft.
The design shows the Tree surrounded by flowers and edged with leaves.
The 5 page PDF contains charts for the border lace, the entire body of the shawl and color photographs.
