Theolie is relaxing knit and a very wearable design. The graceful shape is created using straightforward increases in the garter stitch section. The border is then picked up and worked directly onto the edge of the shawl.
The lace section of the pattern has both a chart and written directions so you can choose which to follow.
The pictured shawl is knitted in a light 4ply yarn. After blocking it measures approximately 170cm x 35cm / 67in x 14in
YARN REQUIREMENTS (approx)

Getting an exact gauge is not crucial.
