Vertical eyelet bands dash dynamically like beams of light through the garter stitch body and towards the contrast colour border creating a sleek & simple lace shawl with a modern touch.
Lighthouse is worked top down starting from the neck with a garter tab cast on. Increases are made on both sides for a generous crescent shape wrap that sits steadily on the shoulders and is easy to tie around the neck in numerous ways.
You can easily adjust the size by making the main colour body section as big (or small) as you want.
