Tree of Life in Autumn - Third in the Series

New today, the Tree of Life in Autumn! The third fichu pattern in the Tree of Life Through the Seasons depicts the Tree in Autumn. The difference is in the details: the dense leaves have thinned into an openwork feather-and-fan texture. Falling leaves and flowers surround the tree, and a border of leaves edges the hem.

Like previous designs in the series, the Tree of Life in Autumn 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 4 1/4”-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.

The 5 page PDF contains charts for the border lace, the entire body of the shawl and color photographs.

The winter fichu, next in the series, is well on its way. Design is complete, and knitting is in progress. It should be ready late this week.
