The Old Rose Shawl is a delicate and easy lace shawl pattern, worked flat from the top down. This elegant shawl and its surprisingly easy lace is a great option for knitters who are venturing themselves for the first time in lace knitting or want to build up on their lace knitting skills.
The pattern comes in 2 sizes, shawl and shawlette, but it is also easily adjustable to your available yardage, and it’s clean design also works great with more than one color.SIZES & YARDAGE
