Wrapping up in Shelter is always cause for celebration. Fête expresses this sentiment quite clearly with a charming lace motif resembling bunting rippling in the wind. Sections of stockinette and purl ridges offer moments of rest amidst the engaging interplay of yarnovers and double decreases that create playful triangles throughout the body of the shawl. Enjoy watching the motifs emerge and bundle up in comforting warmth at the finish line.


  • The shawl is worked from the top down, beginning with a Garter Tab Cast On and ending with the bottom border.
  • The triangular shape is created by working 4 increases on every RS row—2 increases at the spine and 1 increase along each edge.
