Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, lace knitting, simple decreases and increases, and finishing.

Pattern Description:

The Apple River shawl is a lace knit with a difference. Its delicate lacy centre is framed by easy-knit stocking stitch wedges either side while the beautiful edging grows organically from the main lace motif. The shawl is knitted in one piece top-down and requires no assemblage.

The pattern is knitted in Malabrigo Lace, a soft singles yarn. I used the Applewood colourway which reminds me of speckled light on autumnal leaves.


20 stitches and 34 rows = 4 inches in Stocking stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Wingspan 50 in / 127 cm and 16 in / 40.5 cm deep at its widest point.


  • Size 4mm (US6) long circular needle. Adjust needle size if necessary to get the correct gauge. Four stitch markers, tapestry needle, blocking pins.

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Malabrigo Lace
