Bands of Lace Shawl
This magazine issue with the pattern can be purchased by single issue (only 3.99 USD) or subscription (6 issues per year) from the website. For purchasing single issue only, find issue No. “5” that contains this pattern. If you are outside the U.S., just type in “N/A” for “State/Province” and you can still purchase the issue.
The original shawl is made in a worsted, but this piece can be made in ANY weight yarn. Just make a starting chain in multiples of 15 + 4 for desired short side width and increase overall row repeats for desired length.
Olive greren shawl is done in a cotton sportweight, see designer’s page here. Light blue shawl is done in Madelinetosh Toshsport; please see designer’s page here for specific mods for sportweight yarn.
The edges of the long sides can be blocked straight or wavy (see blocking pics of green shawl) according to preference, as the shawl easily lends itself to either style.
