Like waves in shallow water, Old Shale lace creates ripples across this simple, garter stitch lace shawl. Knit from the top down, this triangular shawl is bound off with an easy picot edging. Instructions are included for four weights of yarn.

Blocked Size: Approximately 40” deep and 80” across top in fingering, sport, or DK weight yarn following the suggested number of pattern repeats. In lace weight yarn with 4 repeats of lace pattern the shawl will measure about 36” deep and 72” across. Change the number of pattern repeats for a smaller or larger shawl.
