Pattern Description:

Elizabeth is top-down, triangular lace shawl with charming traditional Shetland stitch patterns and motifs, designed with a modern sensibility.

A great shawl to showcase your favorite subtly-variegated, hand-dyed or tonal yarns, Elizabeth will also look stunning knitted in solid colors. Lace or fingering weight yarn is suggested for this pattern.

Elizabeth is offered as a chart-only pattern with large, easy-to-read charts and very detailed instructions on how to use them. Even knitters who have not previously used charts should find these user-friendly and simple to comprehend.

Also included are two additional instruction sheets "How to Block a Lace Shawl" and "Lace Shawl Knitting Tips" for knitters new to the joys and tribulations of creating lace shawls.
