PATTERN NOTES
There is nothing quite like a soothing, understated project. Written for two sizes, the Large version could double as a luxurious blanket and the smaller size is perfect for everyday wear. The body of the shawl is comprised mostly of a sea of seed stitch. Increases along the outer edges. It is constructed sideways from tip to tip, beginning and ending with just one stitch. The shawl is then finished with a more challenging applied lace border.

On rows 2 and 6 of Chain Lace Edging, the k2tog’s are worked using the second loop of the double yarn over (from the previous row) and the following knit stitch.

The shawl stick shown is by Jul Designs and is available for purchase here.
