The elements of design in this lovely knitted masterpiece are merely three traditional Shetland lace motifs. It is the simple change in sequencing the order amongst the repeated motifs that produces the seemingly complex designs of negative and positive space.

Instructions are included for a small delicate scarf and for stoles in 3 widths. All are made in one piece from end to end with edging knitted as you go.

Stitch instructions are both charted and written out. Recommended for experienced lace knitters and confident intermediates only. The small scarf can be used as a practice piece before attempting the larger projects.

Note: All rows are patterned lace; there are no ‘rest’ rows. The scarf and shawl are reversible with no right side/wrong side.
