Pomona is a very soft and light shawl with a beautifully simple and wearable look and shape.
The shawl is knit lengthwise and the entire width is cast on from the start. From here, the shawl is worked back and forth with short rows and increases that create the elongated crescent shape.
Pomona is has wide edge bands of garter stitch, which are shaped using short rows at both ends to create fine points.The main part of the shawl is worked in wedges of stockinette and reverse stockinette, which are shaped using short rows, so they are widest at the center and taper out toward the two ends of the shawl.
To make knitting Pomona as simple as possible, stitch markers are placed where the short row turns are made. The idea behind this is, that once you’ve gotten started and have grasped the simple principle behind the con- struction, you can just knit away without having to consult the all the time.
