Channel your inner ghost knitter and create a shawl perfect for Halloween, autumn and beyond. A deep triangular shawl edged with delicate lace featuring a skull motif, The Ghost Knitter’s Shawl is fun to knit with an easy-to-wear shape that can be styled a number of ways. Worked
top-down, the shawl begins with a garter stitch section that can be worked as stripes. Or you may choose to omit the stripes and work yours in a gradient, either a single skein or fading mini skeins which then flow into the ghost lace.

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the lace section.
