Prize Draw Update: The winner of these skeins of Faery Wings skeins has been announced here.

Simple and stylish, lacy but not fussy, this top-down semi-circularish shawl transitions from stocking stitch to lacy edging all in single rows. There are two sizes to choose from, a smaller shawlette and a more generous shawl. It can be worked in laceweight to sportweight yarns making it perfect for showing off your hand-dyed treasures.

The lace patterns are given in both written and charted forms. Step-by-step instructions show you how to get started with the slightly unconventional beginning – a variation of the garter tab start, recently also known as Åsa’s Amazing Tab Cast On (with only a little tongue-in-cheek -- it is rather clever!)

Available in Japanese from Atelier Knits

Top photo: Large shawl knitted with 2 skeins of Faery Wings
2nd photo: A hybrid -- small size but with the full lace repeats of the large size (knitted with 1 skein of Wollmeise 100%)
3rd photo: Small shawlette knitted with 1 skein of Bugga -- Please NOTE: The new Bugga is apparently a smaller skein, so it may not be enough for a 1-skein shawl.

Printing: If you are comfortable knitting from charts, there’s no need to print pages 3-4 (written instructions).
