Elegant and ethereal, this is a quick, relatively simple top-down triangular shawl that begins with the same four row pattern repeat until the edging. This is a great shawl for a beginning lace knitter, (or a more experienced lace knitter who wants something simple to knit that doesn’t involve a lot of concentration!)….Only the bottom edge is charted AND written. This can be extended for a slightly larger shawl by repeating the edge chart.

To achieve the open, airy, lacy look of this shawl, be sure to knit with a slightly larger needle ; this will ensure that the holes produced by the yarn overs are nice and big. Also, this shawl needs to be blocked somewhat aggressively so that the pattern can breathe :-)

Since I am quite a loose knitter, a size 6 needle is just right for me to create a nice open, lacy fabric. If you are a tight knitter, I suggest sizing up to a size 7 or even 8.

Happy Knitting! Marisa

A HUGE ‘Thank You’ to Monika in Austria and Rosa in Spain for their translations into German and Spanish!

On January 26, 2013, I modified the edge chart, to better accommodate the four row repeat which comprises the body of the shawl. The body will be knit until 207 sts (previously 203 sts), then begin the edge chart. The new chart is the same as the original, except that what used to be the first row of the chart is now the last row of the chart.
