This rectangular lace shawl features a 24-row stitch pattern, worked over a multiple of 27 stitches, plus 1. The lace is worked on the RS rows only, and all WS rows are purled. In the shawl shown here, and in the pattern instructions, the 27 stitches (charted) are repeated five times horizontally to get an approximate width of 27 inches. If you want a narrower stole, you could cast on fewer stitches and do three horizontal repeats instead.

Finished Measurements:
• Length: 65”
• Width: 27”

Yarn:
Approximately 320-350 grams or 1320-1380 yards of fingering weight yarn, preferably in wool.
(I used approx. 1330 yards of Lion Brand’s LB 1878 in the Claret colorway. I think the yarn has now been discontinued.)

Gauge (after blocking):
Measured over 4 inches: 21 stitches and 30 rows

Needles:
• One 32-inch US size-5 circular needle for knitting (or needle size needed to get gauge or the fabric you like).
Optional: One 32-inch US size-8 circular needle to cast on and bind off loosely.

Notions:
• 6 stitch markers (or fewer, depending on your preference)
• Tapestry needle to weave in ends
• Blocking pins (and wires, if needed)
