016 The Tree of Life in Paradise Fichu

Through the Seasons depicts the Tree in Paradise. Rays of light emanate from the center of the Tree and lush flowers fill the outside corners. The lace border is composed of flowers and leaves. Glimpses of tropical blue sky peek through warm, lush jungle colors. The fichu shown is knit with two skeins of Crystal Palace Yarns Mini Mochi in Color 119.

The Tree of Life in Paradise 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 fifth and final fichu pattern in the Tree of Life series.
