Karin Lace Shawl #V904
Little lace hearts cascade down to a heart border and scalloped edging on this triangular shawl.
Knit from the top down, the simple stockinette stitch lace repeats over 12 stitches and 12 rows, so it is easy to customize the size. It looks great in a variety of lace, fingering, and Shetland/sport/DK weight yarns.
The shawl is named for my Swedish friend Karin who loves hearts. Her vision and passion for learning traditional techniques inspired Seattle's Nordic Heritage Museum to create its Nordic Knitting Conference.
