Warm up and get cozy in this bold yet gracious shawl that will hug your neck during the colder months of the year. It’s a triangular shawl worked from the top down, with a large lace pattern and a border of horizontal ribbing-like lines. An icord follows the outer edges, to create a bold edging that will never roll! Both sections are fully adaptable in length so you can make your shawl as big as desired. Therefore, you can use any yarn weight from light fingering to heavy worsted, it only depends on how big you like your snakes and spiders!

About the icord border
For this pattern, I came up with the idea of adding an icord all around the shawl. It is achieved by working an icord tab as an alternative to the classic garter tab, as well as an icord bind-off. If the icord border is not for you, the pattern includes all explanations to make a garter tab instead.

Intermediate - lace knitting, icord knitting, basic increases and decreases.

Adaptable triangular shawl
With its top-down construction, you can make the shawl longer or shorter by changing the length of Spider section (lace) or Snake section (border).

Pattern includes both charted and written instructions.
