Garden Party

This triangular shawl starts with a central leaf panel. After that the right side is knit, then the left side. The full triangle is made a little larger, then it is finished with a wide applied border.

If you prefer to knit a rectangular shawl or a scarf, see Flower Faire, as it uses the same stitches.

Many, many thanks to my wonderful test knitters: Angelika, Dixie, and Kristie, without whom this pattern would be filled with holes and errors. Thank you, ladies!

"I recently purchased a skein of Cecilia from Posh Yarn to make an undetermined shawl for a friend of mine who is having her 60th shortly. Dee from Posh Yarn pointed out your pattern to me and I was immediately sold. I just cast on tonight (three sets of leaves down) and had to stop to come and send you a message to tell you your pattern is amazing! Apart from the finished product (the red test knit is sensational), the pattern text and charts are extremely clear and easy to read. I couldn’t ask for better presentation in a pattern."
