The Dream Lake Shawl is an asymmetrical triangle worked corner to corner with a repeating design segment of differing textures that cycles through your chosen colors. This design segment is highly modular so feel free to experiment with different yarn weights.

The shawl is an adaptation of my Dream Lake Cowl Design. The brioche trees from the Cowl have been modified to be worked flat, and there is no need to transfer stitches or use a third needle to work the trees.

The pattern includes written instructions as well as charts. Two variations for the lace panels are provided.

Three sizes are included: S (M, L)

I learned and adapted the honey-comb brioche stitch used in this pattern from Nancy Marchant’s site http://www.briochestitch.com/. This web-site has a plethora of useful information and instructions for brioche stitches. This pattern uses the terminology developed by Nancy Marchant.

In versions prior to 1.1, in the Finishing Section, the final stitch count for the large shawl should be 163 stitches.
In versions prior to 1.2, the dimensions on the schematic did not match the finished sizes.
The first stitch in the first row of each Variation of Lace Chart A should be a knit stitch, not a slipped stitch.
The first stitch in the first row of the left edge chart B should be a purl stitch, not a slipped stitch.
