Vertical eyelet bands dash dynamically like beams of light through the garter stitch body and towards the contrast colour border creating a sleek & simple lace shawl with a modern touch.

Lighthouse is worked top down starting from the neck with a garter tab cast on. Increases are made on both sides for a generous crescent shape wrap that sits steadily on the shoulders and is easy to tie around the neck in numerous ways.

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

YARN
Two colours of fingering weight yarn.

Shown with Lakes Yarn and Fiber Silk Single Fingering in colourways Lutra (MC) and Sweet Clover (CC).

AMOUNT OF YARN NEEDED
Main colour (MC): 378 m / 414 yds
Contrast colour (CC): 171 m / 188 yds

NEEDLE
Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain pattern gauge.

This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
