Lily Go adds another stunner to her portfolio of ornate lace shawls. Striking Anisos is composed of four triangles, two larger ones forming the back and two smaller ones wrapping to the front.
Written for five sizes ranging from a dainty shawlette to dramatic statement piece with an enveloping 80” wingspan, Anisos is worked in Loft from a picot cast-on for the bottom edge. The lace portion is worked from charts. The body of the shawl is textured with alternating veins of garter stitch radiating from the center spine and hinging at the shoulders.
