Description: “Noella” - a French Feminine form of Noël, which means Christmas.

I love this shawl specifically for it’s simplicity. I started knit it at the end of 2012 just two days before Christmas, as a gift for my mother, and ended up giving it to her in mid March - but I think I get brownie points for it being before Mother’s Day.

That being said - if you have more than two days - this shawl makes an excellent, special, last minute gift for any occasion. And if you don’t have more than two days, it makes a great project for sitting around, hanging out, talking, laughing, and knitting.

Yardage Note: This shawl needs 2,475 yards (2,263 meters) total - you’ll be holding three strands of yarn together throughout the shawl, which works out to 3 balls of Jade Sapphire, “Lacey Lamb” or if you’re substituting yarn, 3 balls of 825 yards (754 meters).

Skills Used: casting on, binding off, knitting, working in the round on circulars and DPNs, k2tog, yo, weaving in ends, blocking lace
