Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • single decreases (ssk, k2tog)
  • double decreases (sssk, k3tog)
  • lifted increases (m1)

Pattern Description:

This triangular shawl was inspired by lace-like details on the Eiffel Tower. It is a charted and written lace design, with lace knitting on every other row.

The shawl is knit from the top centre out, beginning with a tab cast on. As much of the body is stockinette, it is a fairly quick knit. Two repeats of the second chart can be done to increase the size from 3 arches to 5 arches.

The pattern includes stitches like yo, single decreases (ssk, k2tog) and triple decreases (sssk, k3tog), and lifted increases.
