Sivia Harding shares the story behind her Ambrosial shawl..."The theme of this installment is renewal, and I delved into not only old shops but vintage buttons, but old books for the stitch patterns used in this design. Old things respectfully used in a new way make my heart sing. I hope you feel the same.

This time, the crescent shape looks whimsically like a crescent roll about to be rolled up! This piece casts on in a corner and grows in a diagonal manner. You will notice that most of the charts feature increases that lean toward the right side. The beaded borders that you see along both long sides feature a fern-like design that is very subtly shaped by the waving stitch pattern. The stitch pattern in the center section, a modification of one found in a book entitled Florence Knitting Silk No. 4, published in 1892, cascades in columns. The ending diagonal edge is a scalloped flourish that you may emphasize by blocking out the points as severely as you like.

I have given you two sizes, both of which can amazingly be made out of one skein of Buffalo Wool Company’s exquisite bison/silk Sexy yarn. The smaller version is buttoned. Think of it as a little gift, one for you and one for a friend."
