ERRATA 03/09/2010:
Row 3 of lace section should read:
Row 3 (RS): k3, slm, YO, k2, YO, k2tog, YO to 3 sts from m, k2tog, k1, YO, slm, k1, slm, YO, k1, ssk, YO, ssk to 2 sts from m, YO, k2, YO, slm, k3

A clean and simple shawl pattern – a stockinette body, a simple four row lace repeat and a garter stitch edge.

The yarn over and decrease combination makes a simple mesh of diagonal lines aligned with the center stitch. Increases at the edges on both the wrong side and the right side create a shallow body with plenty of width for ample wrapping, looping, snugging, tying, etc without so much length that the point of the shawl is at your knees.

Deirdre has been knitted twice by me, but the pattern hasn’t been tech edited, so if you do decide to knit Deirdre and you find any mistakes please let me know!
