Rustic tweed meets romantic lace. The different textures create an interesting contrast with a vintage vibe. The shawl is the perfect companion when the chill sets in.

The body of the shawl is worked sideways, from point to point. The lace is made separately, and attached by simple crochet stitches (or sewn on, if preferred).

The cable and lace patterns are given in charts only.
The pattern includes instructions on how to recalculate the lace if the shawl body doesn’t meet the measurements in the schematic.
