Worked from the bottom up, the lace edge features a modified Estonian lace pattern. The shawl body is worked in garter stitch with short rows to create the crescent shape. Both top and bottom edges of the shawl have picots. Picots and lace combine to create a delicate and feminine shawl.

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions. The pattern has been test knit by my lovely test knitters and has been professionally tech edited by Katherine Vaughan.
