Paisley Swirl is a graceful shawl (approx. 30" along top curved edge of each “wing” and 26" down middle back) that falls from the shoulders in an ever-increasing swirl. It stays in place with its unusual shaping, which is more than a semicircle and shows the paisley lace motifs to fine advantage. The shawl is worked by casting on four stitches at the middle top, then increasing with the “pi” method to create a semi-circular shape. Longer “wings” are shaped with extra increases on the long top edges. It is finished with a lace edging worked sideways and attached to the live stitches of the shawl to bind it off. This is a garter stitch shawl with lace shaping on return rows. Recommended for experienced lace knitters, and uses 2 balls of Fiddlesticks Knitting Exquisite (50% mulberry silk/ 50% merino wool - lace weight - 545 yards per 50g ball).
