Magnificently sprawling square lace shawl. This stunning lace shawl is knit in the round with no purl stitches.

Lace stitches only on even rows, all odd rows are knit around. The charts are simple to follow and suitable even for an adventurous beginner.

The Blue Faced Lace creates a lofty, rustic fabric. It’s a woollen spun 2-ply yarn, that provides lightness and warmth without too much body.

The shawl can be easily made into a baby blanket or an afghan just by substituting a thicker yarn and perhaps working fewer repeats.

I would recommend not using a superwash yarn, as it can have too much drape for such a large project.

Instructions given for a triangle version (pictured in a handspun yarn).

SQUARE version: row 24 purl. It should be knit.
Some folks who have knit this pattern suggested the following:
Row 9 of the edging should start and end with 5 stitches instead of 4: “yo, k5….k5, yo, spine stitch”
