Shoulder Shawl in Cherry Leaf Pattern
Original lace pattern from Weldon’s Practical Knitter.
Pattern Description from Victorian Lace Today: “I have worked this pattern in several different yarns, from fine silk to Shetland wool to a 4-ply kid mohair-merino blend; all are pleasing. This shawl is worked from the point up to the hypotenuse, with the border knitted on afterwards. To make it larger, just knit more repeats!”
