Seeing so many skull shawl patterns lately that are an open kind of lace work made me wonder if there wasn’t some other way to present this popular motif. Then it occurred to me to use a tessellating setting, and after a bit of trial and error the shawl with the look of “lost souls” developed. My thanks to Linda for modeling the finished shawl (glad you enjoyed your birthday present)!

I’d also like to thank EleonoreItchwitch for translating the pattern into Dutch.
