The Story

I was inspired by the bold colors of Candy Skein’s yarn so I decided to keep the design simple and let the colorway be the star. Simple lace work in the form of eyelets lets the yarn shine rather than focusing on intricate stitches.

By the time you’re done, you’ll have lots and lots of eyelets… EyeLOTS!

Notes

This shawl is constructed in a traditional triangle method, worked flat, written in the order of construction. Written instructions and charts are provided for all sections following the setup.

This shawl best fits a 40” circular needle however the user may substitute longer or shorter needles for comfort.

Although gauge is not critical for this project, a looser gauge than noted will result in the use of more yardage.
