|This sheer triangle shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) features an allover pattern of repeating shapes that resemble the artichoke plant and fruit. The pattern can be adapted to any yarn weight by using an appropriate needle size, and knit to any desired dimension. Lace knitting on both sides of the fabric produces crisp lines and large eyelets with a deeply scalloped hem.
