Tasha Tudor was known for dressing in simple clothing and leading a simple life. I like to imagine that when she attended a special event she would don her pretty but practical shawl. I designed this shawl as an afterthought to the Tasha Revisited shawl. The construction is the same, but the Lace and stitch patterns are fancier. Perfect for wearing for a night on the town.

Feel free to experiment with needle sizes and yarn weight to create a more dense or less dense fabric or a larger shawl.

Blocking will make a big difference in the drape and the look of the finished shawl.

Fingering: 100g/420 yards US Size 6 - 4 mm needles.
Sport/DK: 800 yards US Size 7 - 4.5 mm needles.
