Lined with rows of delicate eyelet flowers, this simple triangular shawl is an easy accessory and a beautiful transitional knit. A border of drop stitch ribbing topped with a few rows of simple garter traces its way around the V-shaped edge, promising a delightfully meditative knit. Early Crocus is a pleasant knit aimed at those who are new to shawl knitting. A combination of basic techniques along with classic shaping make a perfect first shawl project that invites interesting color and fiber choices.
