Pattern Description:

The shawl is named after the Lady of the Lake from the Arthurian legend.
In many versions she is the one who gives Arthur the legendary sword Excalibur.
The nature and water theme of the lace and particular the metal pin which stands out in my parasol reminded me of this part in the legend.

The shawl starts with a circular cast on
and is worked in spirals from the inside out.

**Needle:** US2 1/2 (3mm) circular needle 24 inch (60cm) or longer

**Yarn:** 2448 yards (2240m) light fingering weight

**Notions:** Stitchmarker, umbrella with a 65cm radius

The pattern is written for an experienced or advanced knitter.
Lace is worked in knit as well as purl stitches.
Part of the lace is knitted in every row but it's easier then it looks.

It ends in generous ruffles which can be adjusted in length.

**A tutorial for building the parasol is on my blog.**


30 sts x 40 rows in a 4" (10cm) stockinette stitch square.
