The Squall Line Shawl is a cuddly oversized shawl incorporating the Wind-and-Shore stitch pattern (from the book) as a knitted-on edging. On this one, I explored how a heavier-weight yarn changes the nature of a lace stitch. The center triangle uses a lace pattern worked on both the front and back sides, but combining this potentially difficult patterning with a heavier yarn makes the stitch just fly off the needles.
