Angelfish

DSC05031

The freshwater Angelfish is one of the most beautiful aquarium fishes. Their long, dramatic fins make them look graceful and elegant. The Angelfish shawl echoes the shape of the fish's fins in an easy to wear elongated triangle. Knit sideways, this small shawl allows you to use the maximum amount of your yarn and is easy to wear as the point of the triangle is more shallow than a traditional top down shawl. An interesting, allover mesh forms the body of the shawl, while it is edged in a variation of the traditional wave pattern. It's perfect for Summer or anytime you are looking for a light accessory without adding too much warmth. Using a silk or silk blend yarn will give your shawl a shimmer similar to the elegant Angelfish itself.

Shown in Handmaiden Sea Silk in the Periwinkle colorway, one 100 gram skein (400 m) of this fingering weight yarn was used. Since this shawl is knit from side to side, it is adaptable to the actual amount of yarn you have. It could also be worked in other yarn weights. Knit on US 7's (4.5 mm), it was aggressively blocked to a finished measurement of 72 inches across the top edge and 23 inches from the center back down to the point.

Stitch patterns are given in both charted and written out format so the knitter can use whichever method they prefer.

It occurred to me that due to the size of this shawl, it would actually make a very cute swim coverup if it was tied sarong style around the hips.

Hmmm. I'm considering this in a linen yarn I have left over from a previous (skirt) project. Could make a beautiful outfit. Skulking off to consider.

Is this Mermaid's Mesh? I love that pattern, and this is simply beautiful.

Beautiful! Is the point of this shawl typically pointy, or more as you describe the Belladonna shawl?
