Wisteria is one of the most adventurous shawls I have made so far. When I started the project, I didn’t have any elaborate plans, didn’t really know where I was going, I just wanted to use this pretty yarn, drew a simple chart and started knitting. I never thought much ahead, only drew one chart or a couple of rows at a time and tried to use my intuition to figure out what to do next. This must be the reason why this shawl has everything I love most in knitting: lace, cables and leaves. The pattern is broken down into five charts (written-out version always available!) going from relatively simple to a bit challenging and then back to relaxing, always keeping your interest. The middle part contains quite a number of cables, which form an arch-like pattern, giving the design an architectural feel.
This pattern is both charted and written out, has been tech edited and test knitted. You can find a sample page among the pattern pictures.
A little note on the yarns: I used a different yarn for the last couple of rows. Using only one type of yarn is possible, however, finding the perfect contrast colour can be fun! :) And a great opportunity to use up some of your leftovers.
