On a Lark Shawl blends the love of color with interesting textural stitches, ending with a simple two row lace repeat of Larkspur lace and a picot bind off. It’s sure to become your go- to accessory when you need a dash of color and a ton of fun. It’s the perfect time to try a little bit of lace, with written and charted patterns for the lace. It’s also the pattern to use for those two lone skeins of sock yarn you have in your stash that just look lovely together but are just too pretty to be socks.
