Ginkgo Shoulderette Shawl – knitting pattern
Wrap yourself in this warming shoulderette shawl, bordered with a leafy pattern reminiscent of ginkgo biloba foliage. The ginkgo tree has been called “a living fossil”. Its form has remained virtually unchanged since the time of the dinosaurs, lending it a vast sense of eternity. Last September when I was creating this
pattern, here in New Zealand the ginkgo trees were unfurling their new spring growth, while those of you in the northern hemisphere lucky enough to live near these beautiful trees, were enjoying the golden hues of their autumn/fall foliage. This shawl is a peaceful knit – zone out in meditative stocking stitch until you reach the border. Then the lace pattern is worked on both the knit and purl sides, requiring a little more concentration. :) Recommended Audio Meditation The Tree – A Grounding Meditation (free audio link)

Inspiration I first saw this lace stitch on a knitted dish cloth and envisaged it would make an attractive edging for a triangular top-down shawl. I charted the written instructions and mirror imaged the lace, adapting it to fit within a triangle shawl shape. After completing a small test knit, the edging reminded me of the ginkgo tree and its beautiful fan shaped leaves. To emphasize this, I used a stretchy bind-off, so the leaves could be blocked easily into shape. I spun the handspun version from heathered green batts created by David from Southern Cross Fibre; baby alpaca lending the fine merino wool extra warmth and a cosy halo. The gold version is from sock yarn I hand dyed.
