Glowing candle flames on a chilly evening as delicate shadows dance across the wall. A dimmed chandelier all swagged and glittering above a table full of friends. What images does Chandelic’s intricate lace pattern call to yourmind? I fell in love the first time I saw it. I hope you do, too!
Squishy garter stitch meets elegant lace in this generously sized crescent shawl. Knit from the top center out, the shawl grows wider with every row, creating a dramatic flared shape that’s easy to wear. The pattern is designed to show off solid and tonal colorways beautifully, and the finished shawl is classic and timeless — just as at home with jeans as it is with a little black dress.
Lace is both written and charted, and Chandelic has been tech edited and test knit, so you can cast on with confidence.SIZE
