This shawl is stunningly elegant and incredibly light while still providing warmth. It will work in a variety of settings, from an evening out, to cuddling up in a lakeside cabin watching storms roll over. It would also work beautifully as a shawl for a winter or fall wedding.
Pattern has been sample knitted and tech edited. Both written and charted instructions are provided.
This is an excellent project for both a confident knitter and someone who wants to expand their repertoire. The shawl builds to a beautiful complex piece of work but each step is carefully laid out and the individual lace patterns are relatively simple.
This shawl is also available as a commissioned work. Please contact me directly – firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further.
