The wide lace border on this triangular shawl is reason enough to want to knit up this seamless beauty! In addition, it’s a thoroughly indulgent accessory with its generous and cozy size.

The soothing mix of textures begins with a Garter stitch tab technique, which sets up the triangular shape. The Garter stitch edgings continue throughout the main Stockinette stitch body, with a few bands of seed stitch for added textural interest.

After the last seed stitch band, the leaf and nupp (bobble) lace border is knit, ending with a neat, ribbed edge. Nupps can be omitted.

Knit this shawl in a worsted-weight yarn with beautiful stitch definition and softness, such as the alpaca shown here. Other soft and supple worsted-weight options with merino, cashmere, etc., would work well.

NOTE: The lace border stitch pattern is charted ONLY.

Shown in Berroco Ultra Alpaca. Other worsted-weight suggestions listed above.
