Victorian Ferns is a long narrow asymmetrical shawl with a fern-like border on the top edge and a lace edging.
The construction is very simple, using basic increases and decreases. And there are both charts and written out directions, so you can use the one you prefer!
Make It Your Own
This shawl is highly adaptable to yarn, needle size, and length. You can continue the repeat section until you get the length you want, or run out of yarn, whichever comes first.

About the Designer: Helen Silva
Although I have been knitting on and off for approximately 60 years, I only began delving into design in 2019.
I like quick and simple stashbuster type projects that can be done easily by an adventurous beginner looking to expand skills, but can also hold interest for more advanced knitters.
I primarily design hats, mitts, neckwarmer cowls, and simple shawls, which can be found on my Ravelry designer page at https://www.ravelry.com/designers/helen-silva
