Short Description: Ramalina by LaVisch Designs. The Ramalina shawl, named for the greenish lichen, was inspired in both construction and coloring by this wonderful part of nature. The plain stockinette body lets the subtle variegation of the silk yarn used really shine. Ramalina is a semi-circle Pi shawl worked from the top-down in one piece, starting at the neck edge with a garter stitch tab. The shawl is finished with a lace edging in the contrast color. The instructions for the lace are provided both charted and written out.
