I wanted a shawl which could be used for a baby boy AND his mother! I have combined Shetland lace stitch patterns to give a useful shawl which is both elegant and warm, and which is not too lacy to be used for a boy.
The shawl is worked to and fro from the centre out, including the borders. The lace is then knitted on sideways before the seam is sewn.
The pattern will work for most other ColourMart lace weight yarns, and cobweb or laceweight yarns from other companies. The yardage may vary. Be sure to check your tension.
Note that the pattern for this shawl is included in the Cataria Christening Set ebook.
