Theodora’s shawl

Exquisitely elegant, colorful and a study in varying stitch patterns. From simple striping to various but all very manageable lace stitches. The shape is a sort of asymmetric triangle. From the tip with a center double decrease to the long and lacy straight end there is a lot going on. In essence you will never get bored~
It’s big and just beautiful!

The pattern is written and several charts for lace sections.
