The Mountain Nettle Shawl by Emma Welford is a really lovely triangular shawl knit out of Acadia in Kelp, a bright yellow green. The main body of the shawl features bands of diagonal rib on a stockinette stitch background. The feminine knitted-on lace edging adds a beautiful lacy texture to finish off the shawl.
