Amphorae Shawl

The lace motif adorning this shawl reminds me of an amphora, a vase that has a pointed base, rounded body, and narrow neck. Amphorae have been used since ancient times to store and transport liquids, especially wine. This shawl is worked from the bottom up, and is shaped by decreases along both outer edges and center. The rapid decreases along the outer edges cause the top edge of the finished garment to form a natural curve, and also create more tapered ends than in a typical triangular shawl; these features allow the shawl to curve more easily around the neck and shoulders.
