Dane is a shallow triangular shawl (or large scarf), based on the traditional Danish heart-shaped tied shawls. It uses an adaptation of Oriel lace, which I’ve named Oriella.
The original pattern calls for a fingering weight yarn. The pattern is adjustable to the yarn weight and needles you have. For example, my test knitters also tried it in worsted weight (600 yds) on US9 needles (24” deep x 60” wingspan).

Thank you to all the new lace shawl knitters who are using the Dane shawl as your first project! If you are having a difficult time moving from Rows 1-12 chart to Rows 13-24 chart, please read the following:
When shifting from one chart to the other, the location of the repeat changes. If you are using markers, you will need to shift them.
At the end of Row 11, you will have 18 sts before the repeat, 12 in the repeat, 7 sts beyond that, the center stitch, then 7 sts, 12 repeat, and 18 at the end of the row. 37+1+37=75 sts
At the end of Row 13, you will have 8 sts before the repeat, two repeats (12 each=24 sts), 8 sts beyond that, the center sts, then 8 sts, two repeats (12 each=24 sts), and 8 at the end of the row. 40+1+40=81 sts
Each time you do a right side row you are adding 3 sts on each side of the shawl.
