Firefly is an asymmetrical shawl that is worked flat from the upper right point to the opposite side. The lace pattern is worked from either the chart or written instructions. Once the shawl has been knit to the specified dimensions, all stitches are bound off and the edges are blocked with the assistance of blocking wires. The wires help the stitch pattern to open up and keep the edges perfectly straight and crisp.

Knit in fall-perfect Kiln Red, Firefly is a standout accessory, but there are several colors available to you on the Purl Soho website
