This large lace shawl begins in the center and is shaped outward towards the edges with 7 patterned “spokes.” The piece is worked in the round and, with the exception of Charts 5 & 6, has a free round of knitting in between each lace round, making this a well-balanced project between mindless and mindful knitting.

Yardage

Approximately 1300 yards of fingering weight wool yarn

Yarn

5 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia Wool; 275 yards/50g)
Sample shown in Foothills

Gauge

18 stitches & 24 rounds = 4” over blocked lace fabric, measuring from a large swatch worked from the 10-stitch bracketed lace pattern in Chart 3; measurements taken from relaxed fabric after lace-blocking
Note: Allow fabric to fully relax after unpinning, before taking final measurement

Needles

One set of DPNs, one 32”, and one 40” circular (optional) in size needed to obtain gauge
Suggested Size: US 6 (4 mm)

Finished Dimensions

58” diameter; measurement take from relaxed fabric after lace-blocking (24 hours after completion of blocking)

Skill Level

3 of 5
