This shawl is worked with a classic top down construction technique. It starts from a small garter stitch strip of knitting. The lace pattern creates a zigzag effect across the body of the shawl and ends with a scalloped edging. It is surprisingly delicate in appearance in the Aran weight yarn used. The entire shawl 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 sample was knit in Deep Sea colour.
