This pattern is currently only available as part of an online class with Creativebug.

In this class, knitwear designer Gudrun shares one of her patterns for making a beautiful Shetland-inspired lace shawl. Worked up in lace-weight yarn, this shawl has a slightly unusual construction—the decorative edge is worked as a strip in an eyelet lace pattern, and then the stitches are picked up along one long edge and worked in garter stitch. This garter-stitch section is shaped with short rows, adding rich texture and a lovely curve to this delicate wrap. This is the perfect project for an intermediate lace knitter (or an ambitious beginner), and it’s a great opportunity to use that one big skein of boutique lace-weight or fingering-weight yarn that you’ve been saving for a worthy project.
