Where I live, the season for wearing a wool shawl is a lot longer than the season of lavenders in bloom. This shawl pattern is inspired by traditional Estonian and Icelandic lace knitting.
Lavandula is a triangular lace shawl with patterning on the right side rows only, wrong side rows are purled. The pattern is charted.
Gauge is not crucial, use needles to obtain a desired lace effect.
