5th Avenue Shawl is a bottom-up triangular shawl in garter stitch featuring asymmetric lines created by easy lace work. The size of the shawl and the number of lines can be easily modified by working more or fewer pattern repeats. The sample shawl was worked with 2 different lace yarns (approx. 660 yds each) held together and beaded along the lines. I hope you enjoy making your own version of this shawl, which will look stylish in various yarn weights with or without beads.
