Water Hyacinth

Leaf and mesh lace give this triangle shawl a dual personality - sometimes dressy, sometimes casual, always playful.

And a nice bonus, the stitch pattern looks equally good from both sides.

The shawl is worked in one piece from a narrow tip to a wide end, ending with a pretty picot bind off.
