The Handspun Delight shawl showcases hand spun yarn. It has been designed to be knit with the typical thick-and-thin yarn which most new spinners produce with their first efforts. This design works well with hand-dyed, variegated yarns, or with a combination of yarn odds and ends. Because of this it is also great for some stash busting.

The shawl consists of a stockinette body and a border based on the Old Shale lace pattern. Charts and full written instructions are given.

This pattern gives instructions for shawls in three sizes: S (M, L) with 5 (7, 9) Old Shale lace fans. On all three versions it is possible to extend the lace edging.

Bulky weight yarn in size S will give a shawlette sized piece similar to the pink sample. Worsted weight yarn in size L and the extended lace border gives a very generous shawl as in the blue-green sample. Working the largest size and border with fingering weight yarn would give a decent shawlette.

Skills required
This pattern uses various increases and decreases: k2tog, k2tog tbl, skp, kfb, M1, pfb and yo. Because of this it is suitable for the intermediate knitter, or the more adventurous beginning lace knitter.
