Snowfield Lace Shawl #V1001
A band of snowflakes borders a snowy field of mesh lace on this Icelandic influenced triangular shawl. Knit from the top down, the mesh lace repeats over 2 rows, so it is easy to memorize and fun to work. The snowflake lace border is outlined in garter stitch and ends above a snowdrop edging that is cast off with crocheted chains.
Increases in the stockinette stitch lace curve the top edge of the shawl to hug the shoulders, and the size is easy to customize.
Also, the shawl can be knit with no border, or you can create your own design by alternating bands of snowflake and mesh lace.
It can be worked in one color or more and looks great in a variety of lace, fingering, and Shetland/sport/DK weight yarns.
Pattern includes both written instructions and charts.
