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.

I'm a lifelong crafter, but settled on knitting in university when I wanted sweaters but couldn't afford to buy them. My first knitting love was lace. I'm sure I'll keep returning to lace, but there are so many other fun techniques to explore as well!
