The shawl is knit side to side and can easily be made larger by adding repeats.

This design is suitable for the beginning lace knitter who is ready to take on a more adventurous project. Pattern uses the following stitches: k2tog, ssk, lldd (left-leaning double decrease), rldd (right-leaning double decrease), cdd(centered double decrease).

The pattern is best suited to solid color or tonal yarns. Variegated yarns will detract from the geometric lace motif. A gradient or slow-striping yarn should work well.
