This pattern was inspired by a lovely light Fortuny light fixture that illuminated the stairwell of the palazzo in Venice where my husband and I stayed.

This pattern is a bit more straight forward than it looks with most of the stitches being the usual suspects for increases and decreases.

While I used a handspun lace weight yarn spun from Hipstrings’ lovely Dark Magic blended fiber, any lace weight should work. I think it also would be fine in a heavier weight yarn.

There is a semi-circular version of this pattern: Venetian Light Shawl: Semi-circular.

My usual warning:
This pattern has not been tested knitted by anyone other than myself. Please let me know if you find any errors and I will post a new, corrected version.
