The motifs depicted in this triangular shaped lace shawl are inspired by traditional Estonian stitch patterns. After the first stitch pattern is complete, extra increases form a crescent-shaped triangle so the ends of the shawl curl delightfully around your shoulders, ensuring that it stays put.

The pattern also provides details for a plain stocking stitch version with a lace edge so you can do justice to that special ball of variegated yarn you have tucked away.

You will need at least 740 yards (676) metres of lace weight yarn to complete this shawl, or 4 balls of Zealana Kiwi Lace. If you wish to substitute yarn choose a solid or semi-solid yarn so as not to obscure the lace motifs.
