This scarf can be worked in 5 different colors, or 3 for each section. But.. it would also look very good in a single color or even in a slightly variegated yarn.
The pattern seems to be the same all over the shawl, but closer inspection shows very subtle differences.

This fine knitted lace shawl has patterning in EVERY row.
It can be made in 2 sizes, and can easily be altered in length.

There are 4 patterns/ charts: 1 for the edging and 3 for the body of the scarf/shawl.
Patterns for the body are worked: A + B + C + B + A

The edging is knitted at the same time as the scarf.
Charts only.
Explanations for working shetland lace and how to wrap and turn the corners.

Scarf: 21” x 86” or 214cm x 55cm
Shawl: 22” x 96” or 244cm x 56 cm

Correct gauge is not critical for this project, but your final measurements and yardage requirements may vary if your gauge is different.
stitch markers, blocking wires, towel, suitable detergent, water, T-pins, tapestry needle and waste yarn for lifelines.

Thank you Sue for testknitting the extra fine Shawl version.
