This is a simple circular shawl, based on Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Pi Shawl principle, and using traditional Shetland lace motifs. The lace portions of the design are charted only.

I knitted the original shawl in Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal yarn in a pretty shade of raspberry pink, hence the name of the shawl! The last section, before the knitted-on lace edging, can be expanded to increase the diameter, if you want a larger shawl.

The shawl is knit in the round, with a knitted-on edge, and is approximately 145 cm in diameter (57”)
