I love lilacs, their sweet fragrance and delicate flowers in the spring, the glossy green leaves through the summer. Of all the lilac varieties one of my favorites is the Miss Kim Lilac. She is compact, but beautiful, with very fragrant pale lavender flowers.

This top down, triangle shawl starts from a compact, three stitch provisional cast on and the pattern stitches morph from one to another, but are completely modular so you can knit each one as many (or as few) times through as you like.

Pattern stitches are in charted form and include nupps, centered double decreases, right and left single decreases, yarn overs and make 1 increases.

Original knit in a 2/28 Cashmere from Colourmart this shawl will lend itself equally well to both heavier and lighter lace weight or fingering weight yarns. By adding or subtracting entire pattern repeats the finished size is adjustable.
