Pattern Description:

Blue Angel Shawl

This is what I call a "Faroese-ish" shawl. It has the traditional lace panel down the center back, which allows you to block the shawl so that the shoulders are "shaped" (see schematic) without having to do any special stitch work to shape them.

The center lace panel and the border are actually?the same lace pattern! In the center panel, the lace is reminiscent of winged fairies or angels standing?in a row. When repeated along the border, the lace creates romantic arches and teardrops. A decorative picot bind-off is used to emphasize the points of the lace. Both charted and written-out instructions are given.

Gauge:

4.5 sts and 7 rows in 1 inch (2.5 cm) in stockinette stitch after blocking.

Materials:

  • Size US 5 (3.75mm) 24" (61 cm) circular needle
  • Size US 7 (4.5mm) knitting needles for bind off

Suggested yarn:

400 yards of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Cascade Heritage

Colorway:

Como Blue
