Designed for the Wooly Wonka Shakespeare in Lace Club 2011, June 2011.
The pattern is now available for purchase as a PDF download on Ravelry and from Patternfish. In addition to the original instructions for a 5-panel shawl, the pattern now includes instructions for a 4-panel version (half-circle).
The pattern is suitable for any laceweight yarn, and is shown in the photos worked with Wooly Wonka Thalia (5-panel version - knit using 3.5 mm needles) and Oceanwind Knits Merino Lace (4-panel version - sample was knit using 3.0 mm needles).
Note: My original had beads in the edging, but the pattern leaves them out.
Notes updated Feb. 2, 2013 - added Ravelry as a source
Starting February 6 and continuing until February 24 - a day after closing ceremonies - I will donate 50% of each sale of any of my patterns to http://egale.ca/ , an organization that does good work on behalf of LGBTQ people. I was inspired to do this by my friend Lynne Sosnowski (etcgirl here on Rav), who has written beautifully of her beliefs. I hope Lynne’s thoughts will inspire others to support not only the athletes, but everyone who works hard to be faster, to fly higher, to be stronger, no matter what their endeavor, no matter who they are, no matter who they love.
