This graceful shawl swirls around your shoulders in a froth of lovely Shetland lace. It stays in place with its unusual shaping, which is more than a semi-circle and shows the Shetland lace to fine advantage.

The shawl is worked by casting on four stitches at the middle top, then increasing with the “pi” method to create a semi-circular shape. Longer “wings” are shaped with extra increases on the long top edges. It is finished with a lace edging worked sideways and attached to the live stitches of the shawl. This is a garter stitch shawl with lace shaping on every row.
