A spidery, Gothic lace shawl, adorned with bleeding hearts, and edged with a kicky ruffle. It’s named for my friend Lisa, who was one of the Gothic Cheerleaders, a performance group in Seattle.

  • could be made without changing yarn at the bottom, to make a more slim-lined, less snowy look.

Yarn notes: Shawlette takes about 3/4 of a skein of Arroyo, and about 2/3 of a skein of Chunky, When substituting yarn, mileage will vary, so be sure to have more than this available. You may have some left for gauntlets or another matching accessory.
