A simple lace edging along the lower edges of this bias knit, V-shaped wrap flows into a basketweave lace pattern at the ends. Mountain Avenue Shawl is worked in two pieces: depending on how much space you have for blocking, you can either pick up the stitches for the second half from the initial provisional cast on or work the two halves separately and graft them together at the end. With a simple, 4 row border repeat and a gauge of 15 sts to 4 in/10cm, this generous wrap may be the quick, dramatic piece you’re looking for this winter.

Needles: US9/5.5mm or size needed for correct gauge
Gauge: 15 sts & 22 rows = 4 in/10cm in stockinette stitch
