A lightweight semicircular shawl worked from the top down. It’s airy and lacy, but there are lots of plain knitting rows, making this a good project for the ambitious beginner-lace knitter, or for the experienced lace knitter looking for a relaxing project.

Finished dimensions about 54 inches/137 cm wide by 27 inches/68.5 cm deep.

Pattern includes both chart and large-print written instructions for the chart.

I’ve kept the construction as simple as possible to make this accessible to different experience levels. The edge is a simple garter stitch, and the border ends with an easy stretchy bind off. You could of course, modify the construction with more elaborate edging and a knitted-on border.

I have posted instructions for the Garter stitch tab on my site.
