Simple, feminine, French… with a very nice drape.

A crescent shaped shawlette with a stunning lace and French braid border.

I love mixing lace features and DK weight yarn. For this shawl I wanted a French braid suspended by soft lace, inspired by the yarn Falkland Silk/ Merino DK color Plaque Ocre by Flying Color .

Yardage useful tips (for every yarn weight)

  • Weigh your yarn before knitting.

  • For the body you should use at least half of the yarn. You can go up to a little more but not more than 60% of the total weight. Hope this little bit of mathematics will help you !
