Mermaid Spell is a triangular garter stitch shawl with a smattering of picots, and a triangle-and-diamond applied lace edging. Knit in one piece using Shetland construction and completely reversible, the shawl begins as a rather simple knit and progresses into something a bit more challenging.

Instructions are both written and charted, and the pattern has been updated to include a simpler garter scalloped edging in addition to the original.

Construction Notes:
The shawl is worked in one piece, beginning with the center garter triangle and followed with stripes and an applied lace edging.

Skills Used:
• increasing

A note about gauge:
Gauge is not critical to this project’s construction, however a change in gauge will affect the finished measurements and the yarn requirements.
