We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

FD-32 Midnight Garden

I saw this beautiful border pattern in a book of old German designs. After changing it to fit into an odd number of stitches, I pulled the motif out of the center of the diamonds and repeated it for the body of the shawl. (If you prefer rectangular shawls, see Babylon.)

Shawl is knit from the border edge up to the top center point of the shawl, decreasing four stitches on every right-side row. The final 12 stitches are grafted together. At first the yarn is used up quite quickly, but the final rows are so short that they make up for the initial long ones.

This design is included in e-book, Grandma's Garden.

K2tog tbl and ssk are both left leaning decreases. So, work a k2tog in place of either one on the second half of each RS row.

The pattern instructions say to work SSK as k2tog on the second half, but the charts don't have SSK.
