Snow Prints is a simple lace shawl designed to show off those gorgeous skeins of variegated yarn that you just aren’t sure what to do with but that are too pretty to keep in the skein. The alternation of stockinette and lace panels lets the yarn really shine! It is knit in one piece from the center-top outward. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.
Approx. 425 yards of fingering weight yarn

Sample was knit with size 6 needle but testers were unable to knit full shawl with 1 skein so I have changed the pattern to use a smaller needle. If you find yourself running short on yarn with the Invictus Beyond, I would suggest modifying the edging chart by knitting fewer rows.
You could also knit with the 6 but know that you will definitely need more than 400 yards to complete shawl as written.
