Gowen Shawl by September Knits. Gowen is worked flat in rows but a circular needle is recommended to accommodate the high stitch count. Gowen features alternating sections of garter stitch and sea foam lace. It is worked sideways beginning at one corner and increasing on every WS row to create a triangular shape. The Gowen shawl is worked in sections. Keep an even and not too tight tension on the first and last sts of every row. This will give your shawl stretch and more movement along the wingspan.
