Inspired by the Shetland hap shawls, Victoria begins with a garter background. As the crescent shawl grows, garter lace stripes are spaced on the background color. Then additional lace repeats at the edge of the shawl form gentle waves. Use one color or choose two contrasting colors to emphasize the lace.
