Timeless. Ethereal. Singular. These are only some of the words that come to mind with this lovely shawl design.

Knit from the top down, this triangular shawl is a must-knit. As shown, it begins with a simple Garter stitch section, which showcases the beauty of your yarn. Increases along the center line and at each edge create pretty eyelet accents and a block of nice and easy knitting.

Then, the pattern transitions into a stunning, yet easy-to-learn lace. You will become familiar with the 8-row repeat quickly whether you follow the charted or written version. The right and left sides of the lace mirror each other for beautiful symmetry.

A loose bind off and aggressive blocking bring out the true beauty of this shawl. And if knit (to gauge) as shown, only one hank of yarn was used!

The shawl is easily made bigger by adding more 8-row repeats of the lace. And the same pattern could easily be knit up in a worsted-weight yarn for a chunkier version.

Sample shown used exactly 1 hank of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Penumbra with only 5g to spare. 440 yds is a safer, padded estimate if you are not sure you are exactly on gauge.
