This shawl is worked with a classic top down construction technique. It starts from a small garter stitch strip of knitting. The lace pattern is created with stacked diamonds and ends with half diamonds that create a scalloped bottom edge. The entire shawlette is charted. It can be easily made larger by repeating Charts 2 and 3 any number of times more before completing the final chart for the border.

The photos do not do justice to the colour on most computer monitors. It is a truly brilliant raspberry fushia shade of yarn that runs variations from hot pink to a deeper purple.

2 skeins , in colour Brilliant Raspberry: 100 % Merino Superwash, approx. 350 yds (320 m) to 3.5 oz (100 g).
