Note: There is a missing YO at the end of row 9, just before the edge stitches. I will update the chart ASAP and upload a new copy of the pattern.

Litmus Lace is a nice introduction to simple top down lace shawls. Knit in a fingering weight yarn with less than 360 yards, it’s a quick way to gauge whether shawls might be right up your alley - hence the “Litmus” name.

If desired, add a couple of rows of plain garter stitch just before bindoff to help the edge lie flatter.
