For the Love of Garter V2.0 - PDF Knitting Pattern
A 2-color garter stitch triangular shawl featuring a lace border and highlighted (embroidered) ladders!
Based on the shape and combination of stitches from my ‘For the Love of Garter V1.0’ shawl, this version uses 2 colors and has a more consistent stitch pattern throughout. Add on a picot border and highlighted ladder sts? I think I’m in love!
