Named as an homage to spring, the Rainfall Shawlette is worked sideways and features an integral fringed border created from hundreds of tendrils, reminiscent of streaming rain on windowpanes. A rope cable border mimics the twist of each tiny tendril, while the body portion is simple garter stitch for a relaxing knit.
