The Rain Chain Shawlette was inspired by the kusari doi, or traditional copper rain chain, of the Japanese garden. A simple lace border contrasts with an intricate “rain chain” cable motif across the graceful ridges of a garter ridge shawl, balancing isolated bursts of complex design with expanses of spare simplicity.
The Rain Chain Shawlette is worked flat from end to end to form a gentle crescent shape. It features a built in I-cord top edge with a garden “rain chain” motif, garter stitch body, and a floral design for the bottom edge. Optional beads can be used to bedew the rain chain design.
This pattern includes both written instructions and charts.
