Geometric lace forms textured diamond lanes leading upward and outward on this simple but stunning triangular shawl.

Techniques & Skills Used: knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, easy lace; this pattern is both fully written and charted.

Size: 52” wingspan and 21” depth, customizable.

Yarn: Seven Sisters Arts Apex (60% superwash merino wool, 20% yak, 20% silk; 400 yards/366m/100g); 1 skein, or 400 yards of wool blend fingeringweight yarn with good drape. The sample as written used the entire skein; you may want to have additional yardage on hand as insurance, and as the shawl may easily be enlarged.

Other Materials: US 5 (3.75mm) 32” circular needle or size to match gauge; Markers (3); Yarn needle.

Gauge: 20 st and 40 rows/4” in garter stitch, 18 st and 34 rows/4” in diamond lace pattern, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.
