Crisscross Lace Shawl
The daring diagonal closure of this wrap complements the beautiful lace pattern and is surprisingly easy to construct. Designed in panels of lace, the structure of the wrap grows lengthwise. Knit the wrap in a rectangle shape as you would a scarf and add the buttons along the edge as shown to form the closure. (Lion Brand Yarn)
