Lighthouse is a classic crescent with a modern touch. Vertical eyelet bands dash dynamically through the garter stitch body towards the contrast colour border, creating a sleek & simple lace shawl.

You knit Lighthouse from the top down into a generous crescent shape that sits effortlessly on the shoulders and is easy to tie around the neck in numerous ways.

You can easily adjust the size by making the body section as big or small as you want.

This pattern has both written and charted instructions.
