Anwar means “brighter,” “luminous,” or “light,” depending on where you look. Either way knitting this shawl certainly made a rather dull winter a little bit brighter.
The four row, six stitch, lace repeat is easily memorizable, but builds upon itself to create a stunning shawl.

Instructions are also included for a half circle.
