Inspired by European birches with their diamond-shaped leaves and drooping branches, this triangular shawl uses twisted stitches on a ground of reverse stockinette to give relief and depth to the leaf motif that flows to the arrowhead lace edging.
Shawl is a triangle made up of 2 triangles separated by the center stitch. It is worked from the top down.
