This half-circle shawl incorporates three simple lace patterns in bands of solid and speckled sock yarn. With only a few increase rows, and easily memorized stitch patterns, the pattern works up quickly in fingereing weight yarn.
The shawl is worked from the top-down beginning with a circular cast-on. Rows of increases are worked at intervals to create the half-circle shape.
Instructions for carrying the color not in use up the side, or cutting and reattaching the contrast color yarn are included in the pattern.
