Designed by Kate Gagnon Osborn, this triangular lace shawl begins at the center and increases are worked on either edge and opposite the center stitches. The shawl is designed with three separate lace patterns: a cable and lace with patterning on every other row, a lace with patterning on every row and a geometric border with patterning on every other row.

Worthy of Note
Parquet is worked back and forth from the center neck out. Both right side (RS) and wrong side (WS) rows are charted. The full Set-Up Chart and Body Chart (A + B) are charted, while only half of each Edging Chart is charted. You will be working make one (M1) increases on both the right side and wrong side of the charts. When on the right side, work as a make one knit-wise, and when on wrong side, work as a make one purl-wise.
