Knit the Rose Wedge Shawl
by Amy Loberg
A beautiful lace pattern triangle sits atop a solid garter stitch wedge to create this slightly asymmetrical shawl. The wedge is knit first, then short rows are worked to create the lace triangle. The Rose Wedge Shawl is large enough to wear wrapped, drapey enough to lie beautifully around your neck, and soft enough that you will wear it all year long!

Featuring Mountain Colors' NEW Silkdance!
