This pattern is available to purchase on Ravelry.

This beautiful shawl features a wonderful, textured smocking motif as a border along one side of the garter body that transitions into a matching ribbed border.
Worked sideways from one tip to the opposite edge makes this shawl fun to knit and easy to wear.
The smocking stitch pattern is much easier to knit that it may look. No cable needle or any other fancy tools are needed to create this amazing eye-catching texture.
This pattern is an addictive knit with a beautifully textured result. The finished shawl will add a classic & cosy item to your favourite wardrobe staple.
Fully written row-by-row as well as charted instructions are provided so you can choose which you prefer to work from.
