Carefully trained and pruned trees can be so impressive, an apple espalier was one of my first garden dreams. But my garden is wild, instead, I spend my time knitting. Here, a leaf stitch has been given a trellis to grow on. The stem twists gently and the edge displays a full foilage.

Espalier is a triangle shawl with a center lace panel instead of a single center stitch. The pattern is charted, adaptable in size, and it includes cables, therefore a cable needle is also required. Requires 500 to 600 meters of fingering weight yarn.
