Watch the flyways while wrapped in a light and pretty demilune shawl. Paddock Shawl’s arcs of lengthening lozenges, expanding with concentric increases according to Elizabeth Zimmermann’s half-pi method, form a richly textured plumage. The garter-based fabric has no wrong side, and the half-circle shape laps the shoulders comfortably and stays in place. Slipped garter selvedges create a smooth and tidy top edge; block out scalloped points or leave the trailing edge straight according to your preference. Paddock Shawl is written for both Vale and Loft, so you can choose a delicate, refined effect or a larger farmstead-style shawl.
