the altocumulus shawl by Fiona Alice
the shawl is worked from the bottom point up and the shaping is made by increasing with yarn overs at the beginning of each row. to complete the centre triangle, a loose I-cord bind-off is used. the yarn-overs are then used to easily pick up stitches for the border which is worked in 2x2 ribbing. due to the nature of the two different stitch patterns used, the shawl is almost entirely reversible.
once the shawl is blocked, tiny tassels are added because why not! (these can also easily be left off).
