Basic Skills Necessary:

  • lace knitting and working the pattern on both sides

Pattern Description:

The Crowning Glory Lace Shawl combines the Crown of Glory Shetland Lace pattern with fern lace stitches to create a crescent shaped shawl.

The pattern provides instructions for two versions; one with the final lace repeat creating a ruffle, and the other with a slightly different repeat that still uses the Crown of Glory stitch but has fewer increases in the final repeats and doesn't have a ruffle.

The repeats of the shawl combine a lace section and reverse stocking stitch ridges. The lace section is knitted in pattern on both right and wrong sides which is surprisingly simple once you get the hang of it. Whilst some people find knitting a lace pattern on both right and wrong sides daunting; the shawl has been very successfully knitted by testers for whom it was their first lace pattern.

This shawl can also be knitted in laceweight yarns and guidance is given for making the most of the additional yardage of laceweight yarns - 50g for example of malabrigo lace is sufficient.


24 stitches and 24 rows = 10 x 10cm/ 4 inches x 4 inches over stocking stitch on 4mm needles.
