Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over
  • stitch instructions are both charted and written

Pattern Description:

A sheer and flowing long triangular shoulder wrap knit in geometric lace motifs. This is a good project to make in a special exotic fiber you've always wanted, as it requires only a small amount of laceweight yarn.

Start at the point of the triangle and increase to the widest point, creating a pretty pointed edge along the sides of the triangle. To add a bit of a curve to the basic triangle shape, the initial lace motif transitions into a similar one with a slightly different scale partway through the length of the fichu. A pretty coordinating edging is worked sideways to bind off and complete your project.


4 stitches/inch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Triangular shape 42" deep and 56" - 60" wide


  • 475 - 500 yards laceweight yarn
  • Size US 6 (4 mm) knitting needles
