Garter Leaves Shawl
Garter Leaves is a crescent shaped shawl that is knit from the outer edge to the top. Short rows are used in the center garter portion of the shawl to give it a crescent shape.
The small shawl makes an elegant neckerchief or cowl. The medium shawl offers a little more coverage without being too ostentatious while the large shawl is a full blown knock out. I love to wear the large shawl over a winter coat or sweater in the dead of winter.
