The Dream Lake Shawl is an adaptation of my Dream Lake Cowl design. The shawl is an asymmetrical triangle worked corner to short edge that cycles through your chosen colors and through a variety of attractive textures.

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

Three sizes are included: S, M, L

-Please note that the third version of the pattern has been reworked slightly to improve the “knittability” of the pattern without affecting the look of the pattern. If you have already started knitting a previous version of the pattern, please continue using that previous version of the pattern. The video resources included in version 3 may still prove useful, however.
