Combine classic stripes with lace for a relaxed shawl to enjoy year-round. Asymmetrical triangular shaping is easy to wear and so satisfying to knit. Choose boldly contrasting yarns or knit your Lilli Pilli up with a more subtle variegated yarn and solid colour combination. Or go with classic neutrals for a shawl you reach for regularly over the years to come. Inspired by my loved Lilli Pilli Wrap, I had long been wanting to make myself another when inspiration struck, and I decided to create a shawl version.

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the lace section.
