It was designed to be a great first lace shawl project, and can be made as written or even larger. Since you start at the bottom and work up, you can stop whenever you wish. This shawl grows wide quickly, so it avoids the sharp point at the bottom that might draw one’s eye directly to your posterior. A very flattering shape.
Hand Maiden Fine Yarn Silken | Sport weight | 250y per 100g skein; 100% silk; 4 skeins | gauge: 22sts/30 rows in stockinette st | US 6/4mm needle
Pure silk is perfect for this shawl, but any 2-ply drapy yarn of the same gauge will give similar results.
