Octavia’s Garlands is a unique and customizable pattern for a rectangular lace shawl. You don’t have to be a harpist to make or wear it - any musician or music lover would enjoy it! Please note that this is the abridged version. Click here for the full version. Two music options (Twinkle, Twinkle and up-and-down scales) are included, as opposed to 7 options and a blank scale chart in the full version. The pattern is a 9 page PDF which includes the following:

Color Photos
Leaf Lace Chart
Right-Facing Harp
Left-Facing Harp
Music Chart: Scales, parts A & B
Music Chart: Twinkle, Twinkle, parts A & B

You don’t need to print all the pages for your project. Each shawl only needs the following 5 pages: Instructions, Left-facing harp, Right-facing harp, and parts A & B of your chosen song. Lace patterns are provided in charted form only.

The shawl is worked in two halves which are grafted in the center. Music charts include approximately the first 4 bars of each tune. (Please note that some minor musical liberties may have been taken for ease of knitting.) The tune on the silver shawl is Twinkle, Twinkle.

The shawl uses two skeins of Knit Picks Gloss Lace (70% Merino, 30% Silk) - 440 yd each, shown in colorway “Aegean” (blue) or “Sterling” (light grey), or approx. 880 yards of laceweight yarn. A pattern for Coordinating Armwarmers is available separately. Three skeins of Gloss Lace are enough to complete both projects.
