“Magic is always pushing and drawing and making things out of nothing. Everything is made out of Magic, leaves and trees, flowers and birds, badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. So it must be all around us. In this garden—in all the places.”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Now available here with Line By Line written instructions for previously only charted shawl body and with extended endings, if you find you have just a little more of your gradient yarn to use.

All kinds of knitting is magic to me, but there is something different about lace! Taking only the simplest of tools, some needles and thread; fancy doilies have always intrigued me. Worked in a heavier yarn than the thread that doilies are typically made from, Ashes of Roses includes all the things that fascinate me about fancy lace knitting in a fingering weight shawl. Beads, nupps and the mysterious “no stitch” chart boxes make it exciting enough for the adventurous lace knitter, but really it is much easier than it looks, like magic!

This shawl starts with a simple 3 stitch garter tab and is worked from the top down.

Stitch counts are variable.

Free Pattern on Knotions is in charted form only, no line by line written instructions for the lace patterning.
