This pattern is available for free.

A shallow triangle shawl featuring a single lace motif for the body and a self-edging in garter stitch along each side. Knitted from the bottom (point) to the top edge.
A great pattern especially for handspun yarn as the yardage can be modified (knit until you run out of yarn) and the needle size can be changed to suit variety of weights of yarn.

If you’d prefer not to knit with handspun, Hedgehog Fibres Pure Cashmere Lace (2 skeins) or Hedgehog fibres Sock Yarn (2 skeins) would be lovely. 4mm needle for either one.

Chart only, no written instructions.
Skills necessary: Yarn over, SSK, K2tog, knitting a nupp, Sewn or other stretchy cast-off, blocking of the finished piece.

Yarn notes: Handspun Hedgehog Fibres Big Batt (200g), spin as a fine single and then chain plied to get approx. light fingering weight. The Big Batts are hard to come by, so feel free to experiment with other fibres!

Gauge: is not too important. My shawl used approx. 620m and weighs 185g as per the dimensions listed below. Your own yardage may vary, please keep that in mind.

Size: approx. 200cm wingspan and 75cm deep, after blocking. Your size may vary, depending on your yardage, needle size and yarn weight.
