The Barnaba Shawl is a rectangular shawl whose size can be adjusted by changing the number of pattern repeats. I used a handspun lace weight for my version but I think a heavier yarn could be used.

The motif reminds me of iron grill work I saw along the San Barnaba Canal (Rio de S. Barnaba) in Venice, Italy.

The handspun yarn I used was spun from Hipstrings Starling blend.
