Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Increase and decrease
  • Familiarity with basic lace knitting
  • Ability to work from charts or willingness to learn

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.


Gauge is not really important in lace knitting, but the main shawl pictured was knitted at a gauge of 5 st = 1" blocked

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 36" x 72"


  • Approx. 780-880 yards of lace weight yarn. The shawls pictured used the following yarns:Dragonfly Fibers Squishy Lace, "Heroine" colorway for dark red shawl; Black Sheep Dyeworks Silk/Merino Lace "Moss Tonal" colorway for the green shawl
  • US #3 or US#4 circular needles, 32"
  • 2 sizes larger DPN needle to bind off (optional)

You Will Also Need:

  • T-pins for blocking
  • Stitch Markers
  • Blocking Mats (nice to have but you can always use your bed!)
