This pattern is also available as part of My Heart collection - Book 1: an Eco-friendly e-book with 5 patterns (Maria, Nimbo, Pena, Luz and Flor).

Luz is an elegant triangular shawl knitted top-down, from the middle back outwards to the edging. The main body combines an attractive center section with other lace pattern, both resembling flowers. The lace stand-out out from a plain Stockinette st background. The edging is a combination between the previously worked pattern stitches, ending with a decorative crocheted bind-off for a dainty finishing.

Only one size is given, however, you may customize size by using larger or smaller needles. Luz as pictured used 474.7 yards (434.1 m) of Malabrigo Lace (merino wool
weight/2ply) and has 142 wide by 55 cm long (I blocked it gently).
