The Mary Westmacott Shawl
The stitch pattern for this shawl is easy to learn because of its strong visual nature. It utilizes sections of reverse stocking stitch to delineate each leaf pattern. The pattern is worked bottom up. It’s completely charted to make the transitions simple to follow, as each section decreases. A centre pattern panel shifts the decrease columns out from the mid-way point, to make this project a little prettier. Each right side row shortens by 4 stitches, making the work feel as though it is speeding up the closer you get to the end. (The second gauge appears only to tell you that this wonderful garment is made with a standard sock weight yarn; you do not actually need a 3.25mm/US3 needle-- Ed.)
Designer note: The staff at Patternfish have been asking me where my pattern names come from. The names I've chosen are almost all characters in Agatha Christie mysteries. Mary Westmacott is the nom de plume Agatha used for her romance novels.
