An extravagant lace shawl inspired by the wild colors

of German Expressionist paintings, in particular the work of

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. This inventive lace pattern combines stacked

centered quadruple decreases with yarn over increases - and looks a bit like

feathers and/or melting paint. Once the decreasing technique is learned it’s a very easy, readily memorizable knit.
