I am excited to announce my first ever pattern published in Twist Collective: Antares. Antares is a triangular shawl that is worked from the top down, beginning with a tab cast on, and is shaped with increases worked on RS rows at both ends and on either side of the center stitch. The beautiful Estonian lace stitch grows out of the garter stitch rows that form the top of the shawl. Shawl is finished with a delicate beaded border.

Printed pattern available at your LYS. LYSOs can purchase printed patterns through Bryson Distributing. Pattern PDF is only available through Twist Collective, and on Ravelry (see link below the images).
