This is a knitting pattern for a light and cheerful lace shawl with plenty of air and texture: long zigzag rows blending into a narrow trellis lace edging all around.

It is a relatively quick and easy lace knitting project, since the shawl is worked in one piece without any grafting, picking up stitches or difficult techniques. One should be familiar with lace cast-on and bind-off though, these are not explained in this pattern.

The shawl is designed for 100 g of lace weight yarn (approximately 800 m or 850 yds per 100g).
Size of the sample shawl is 20 x 60 inches (50 x 165 cm) and knitted on 3.5 mm (US 4) needles, it consumed 100 g (830 yds) of Tosh Lace.
Naturally, it can be worked in lighter and heavier yarn weights as well. The information for calculating stitches in order to make the shawl in other weights and sizes is included in the pattern.

The pattern has both charts and written instructions.
