Double Bubble Shawl is named after double yarnovers that give it this additional lacy effect.
The body pattern, which is just composed of combinations of “three” stitches (knit, yo, ssk/k2tog), is very simple even to a novice lace knitter.
The border may require a bit more concentration but the effect you get is quite spectacular.

The shawl is crescent shaped, started in the middle. The volume is built up by increasing at the inner edge.

Sizing is adaptable, you choose how big the shawl is going to be by adding more repeats of the body section. You can also work an optional stockinette section to start with.

Any yarn from lace to DK weight will look good on the shawl. Consequently, needles should be adapted to the yarn used and the degree of lacy effect that you desire to achieve. I personally prefer to knit lace with larger size needles to get it really lacy.

Pictured shawl was knitted with one skein of Merino Baby Silcpaca Lace on US 1½ - 2.5 mm needles and with five repeats of the body pattern. I used up all the skein (3g left) to obtain a shawl that measures approximately 168cm x 44cm / 66 x 17.5” blocked.

I wish you happy knitting and a beautiful final result!!!
