“Lana” is one of the “Hollywood Legends” collection of shawls all named after beautiful women who graced Silver Screen during the last century.

The collection has been created for “Dye for Wool” Merino/BabyCamel fingering yarn. The yarn is very special indeed, exquisitely soft and warm, light and fluffy. The choice of colours is fabulous, ranging from very soft and light to bright and saturated, just take a look here.

“Lana” has a triangular shape with lace and cable border and addition of twisted stitches. The size is pretty generous, enough to cover shoulders, yet not bulky to be worn as a scarf.
The bias construction makes it drape beautifully.

“Lana” is knitted in one piece where border is knitted together with the main panel on one side and knitted-on on the other side.
It starts with single stitch and is shaped by series of side increases. For a perfect finish a short-row technique is applied.
“Lana” requires only one skein (480m) and there will be very little left after completion.
This shawl requires lace knitting and some cabling. It is suitable for knitters of intermediate and advanced skill levels.
Instructions are written and charted.

“Lana” is perfect for any season and is sure to add a touch of elegance to any outfit!

The pattern also available in German!
