The durable linen thread makes this a shawl a perfect tablecloth. It will go to my mother as a Christmas present.

The ground pattern is 'butterflies' from Harmony Guides 450 Knitting Stiches Vol 2. I just love this stich. It is a stockinette based pattern.

The border is composed of stiches from Sharon Miller's Heirloom Knitting. It starts with ferns, continues with spiders runnig from the ferns to the trees. Between the trees I placed some flowers. It's kind of neat, I think. The border is garter stich based as is the edging.

This is the fern edging. This one is also from Sharon's book.
