Appearances can be deceptive!

This shawl involves neither sewing, nor grafting, nor short rows, nor knitting-on; the whole project, centre and edgings, is knitted in one piece from one end to the other. And every alternate row is purled plain.

Gently curving from chest to hips the shawl gradually increases from a short cast-on to the full beck depth and then decreases back again to a short cast-off.

The main lace pattern is adapted from Shetland ‘rose lace’, and the leaf edging is of my own devising (you may like to visit my blog for details of the development of this lace edging pattern).

The pattern is mostly charted with simple and clear written instructions on how to follow the charts. Blocking instructions are included with an accompanying diagram showing relevant measurements. (Final size is 190cm/78” along the top edge, by 65cm/25” at the deepest point).

Many thanks to my wonderful twin-sister, (‘wychwoodlady’ here on Ravelry) who knitted the pictured sample. And many thanks also to Joy, ‘The Knitting Goddess’, who most generously provided the custom-dyed yarn.

The pattern is offered with license for personal, non-commercial use only. If you wish to use the pattern to produce items to sell you are welcome to contact me for permission to do so.
