Shetland Triangle Lace Shawl #R901
The dramatic swirl of stitches on this shawl is created by Fir Cone lace, a traditional pattern from the Shetland Islands that is simple to knit and easy to memorize.
The triangle is knit from the top down, ending with a simple scalloped lace edging. Since that edging can be started at the end of any 10-row lace repeat, it is easy to customize the size. The shawl looks great in a variety of lace, fingering, and Shetland/sport/DK weight yarns.
This design originally appeared in Wrap Style, published by Interweave Press in 2005.
