This pattern is available when you sign up for my Craftsy Class Lace from the Inside Out and as a stand alone pattern.
With the Life Cycle pattern, you will embark on a journey into working a square of heirloom lace. Worked from the center out, Life Cycle can be made either with fingering-weight yarn for a baby blanket, or with lace-weight yarn for a shawl. The square is worked with a succession of stitches that introduce new lace techniques as you knit. The shawl version contains one more section than the baby blanket to ensure a large enough wrap. Finally, an edging is worked all the way around the square, finishing it off with a flourish.
