The stockinette portion of this shawl makes it particularly easy to wear, as it hangs beautifully around the shoulders, framing the delicate lace.
Constructed top down, this heart-shaped shawl contains a custom-designed lace pattern.
The pattern contains both charts and written instructions.
My grass-green sample is in Adriafil Classic Azzura and required just shy of 3 skeins (or 640 yds, 590 metres).
But of course it doesn’t have to be green…The stunning lilac-flower version by debsf summons up the heady experience of a lilac walk in spring, and is in Cascade Yarns Heritage Solids & quatro colours. Whilst ftmling’s version is the blue of a spring sky.
As written this is a medium sized shawl, but it can be easily re-sized by repeating the body chart more or fewer times.
This is an intermediate knit. The lace is all right side and contains only knit yarn overs. Instructions are provided both in written and charted format.
