Eye On The Prize is a large triangular-shaped shawl that explores a series of different patterns using simple eyelet lace stitches juxtaposed with garter stitch stripes. It is knitted in four colours. The main colour is a light fingering weight and the contrast colours are soft and fluffy lace-weight yarns (held double) creating a textural effect. Eye On The Prize is worked top down from written instructions. The striped border is knitted sideways, binding-off the shawl as it goes.

One size. Approximate dimensions of finished garment (after blocking) width at top edge: 252cm 99”, depth at centre of triangle: 81cm 32”.

MC: 1 x Poppy Yarn and Fibre Gobi Shawl light fingering (Peerie Lass).
