Taken from by Anne Podlesak: "The Three Sisters is a traditional Native American method of planting crops. The corn is planted in the center; beans are allowed to use the corn stalks as climbing trellises; and squash or pumpkin vines keep the roots of the plans cool during the hot summers in the region. This fingering-weight shawl combined both lace and cabled sections for a fun and entertaining knit. The shawl is cast on at the neckline and worked down to through the main sections, which consist of 3 triangular "corn ears" lace motifs and 2 "leaf" lace motifs forming the body. A vine cable and lace edging is knit on after the body of the shawl is completed."
