Folk knowledge says that every fog in August means a snowfall come winter. This shawl combines an eddying lace edging with a simple stockinette field of parallel lines, just as the whorls of summer’s morning fog might contrast with the crisp clean of a winter snow. The raised slip-stitch chain pattern provides texture, and the knitted-on border provides drama and contrast.
The lace border is both charted and written.
Skills required: increasing, decreasing, knitted-on cast-on, yarn overs, knitting on a border
