A Time of Rain Shawl

By: Padma R from knotions.com
A Time of Rain shawl
A Time of Rain Shawl

"This is an easy lace shawl: small stitch multiples and no patterning on WS rows add to speed! The pattern is suitable for both beginner and experienced lace knitters, and can be sized down to a scarf. The shawl has 3 sections, which resemble streams of droplets falling from leaves, that later join to form larger drops ending in a leaf edging. It was designed during last year’s monsoon season in Mumbai. Torrential rains outside my window and the sight of sprigs and branches bursting into vivid green made me think of translating leaves and water into lace."

Charts are available on the Knotions link given in the pattern notes.
