“The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” SF is a mild 50 to 60°F most of the year. Locals pack a jacket even if it’s currently sunny. A shawl is also handy to keep you warm when Karl the Fog comes by.

This shawl shows off a luxurious merino/silk blend with simple stockinette and a geometric eyelet lace border. It’s an easy introduction for first time lace knitting or a quick project city commute.

The pattern repeat of the shawl is both written and charted.

Directions are also given for a bandana/shawlette version.

The last sentence in section 1 for the full size shawl should be: “Repeat these 2 rows until 81 st (or repeats of 16 + 1) are on the needles between markers 1 and 2, and 81 sts (or 16 + 1) are between markers 3 and 4.”
