Sweet Oak Shawl
A rectangular shawl with handsome openwork stitch patterns and a seed stitch border. As you work, you progress through four stitch patterns that flow toward the center. The Sweet Oak Shawl (named after the Sweet Oak Cardigan) could also makes a beautiful wide scarf in fine yarn, or a lovely lap blanket in heavier yarn. Stacked decreases form subtle ridges that continue throughout the shawl, and form gentle waves. A great way to show off hand-dyed yarns. Worked in two halves from the bottom up and grafted at the center.
