The beauty and complexity of ice crystals is translated into knitting in this multi-season shawl. Worked from the bottom up, Isen starts with a deep ruffled border and is followed by a textured section, where embossed stitches outline geometric shapes, with optional sparkling beads reminiscent of ice crystals. Simple reverse stockinette short rows (no wraps) shape the shawl into a crescent, which is finished with a beaded border. A tidy I-cord bind off is worked last to reinforce the shawl’s top edge.
