This vintage circular shawl pattern has been updated for modern knitters. The shawl titled “A Handsome Round Shawl Knitted in Star Pattern and Leaves” is in Weldon’s Practical Knitter (1895) and had no picture. The 6 page pattern contains updated instructions. Errors have been corrected, vague instructions clarified, missing instructions added, pattern charted, and a lace edging added. Shawl measured 52” across but could be blocked larger. This pattern is dedicated to my niece’s grandmother, Lydia, who recently passed away.
