Flora & fauna are brought to mind in the stitch patterns and colors for “Majka Shawl” ~ soft greens, browns & blush knit in motifs reflecting leaf, forest & mountains. This is a half-circle shawl, shaped using 3 half-hex sections without discernible divisions.

The upper body gently transitions to a light, openwork lower body, with a lace border surrounding the outer edge. This project is recommended for knitters with adventurous intermediate or above skills. While the pattern is intuitive and rhythmic, there are stitch repeats within each section repeat.

This is the second shawl in The Elements Series by Desert Rose Fiber Arts and represents “earth”. “Atoll Shawl” representing “water” is the first of this series.

The instructions are fully written with charts for the body and border stitch patterns.
