This last offering from the Little Book of Fairy Tales is a little on the dark side. Possibly..

Wicked has become an ambigious word. Once it meant Bad, then it took on a mischievous option, and now it sometimes means awesomely good. Words can be like that..

So this is the sort of thing you could make for your own step mother, whether you think she’s awesomely wicked (in which case, be sure to tell her so!) or nastily wicked (in which case you may wish to keep the shawl’s name a private joke..)

Starting with a simple flower-like lace, the patterning gradually becomes more complex and twisted as you make your way towards the edging.

Heart shaped to stay on the shoulders when you need to keep your hands free for nefarious deeds (as all good villains do), and it has a wickedly pointy tip too.

  • Fully written and charted
  • Patterned on the RS only
  • Beads if you like
  • Any yardage
  • Adaptable yarn weight from lace to DK.
  • Repeat any of the charts as many times as you wish, or skip the earlier parts and go straight into the repeatable edging.
