Skill Level:

advanced skill level requirement Expert

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over
  • lace patterning on every row
  • pattern stitch instructions are both charted and written

Pattern Description:

The elements of design in this lovely knitted masterpiece are merely traditional Shetland lace motifs: Double Daisy, Fan, Spiderweb. It is the simple change in sequencing the order amongst the repeated motifs that produces the seemingly complex designs of negative and positive space.

Instructions are included for a delicate scarf and for stoles in 3 sizes. All are made in one piece from end to end with edging knitted as you go.

Note: All rows are patterned lace; there are no 'rest' rows. The scarf and shawl are reversible with no right side/wrong side. Challenging, but lovely!


20 stitches and 25 rows per 4 inches finished blocked gauge over center section stitch patterns

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 4 sizes: 7" x 42" through 25" x 78"


  • 185 - 1125 yards of lace weight yarn
  • size US 5 /3.75 mm needles suggested
