Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, lace stitches, follow a pattern

Pattern Description:

Clarus is worked top down and is constructed of 2 symmetrical triangles separated by a center lace panel. The lace motif is the same throughout the body of the shawl so once you get the hang of the pattern over a smaller number of stitches you are good to go. The gently ruffled border is worked seamlessly off the body of the shawl. Clarus is written in two different sizes, for two different weight yarns... possibilities abound!
