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.
