This wavy-edged triangular shawl was inspired by lavender fields and flowers. It is a charted and written lace design, with lace knitting on every other row. It can be knit in any weight of yarn by adjusting the number of repeats of the main chart.
The purple fingering weight version is knit in Posh Yarn Miranda 4 ply (~575 yd). The pink worsted weight version is knit in Berocco Ultra Alpaca (~420 yd).
The shawl is knit from the top centre out, beginning with a tab cast on. The pattern includes stitches like yo, single decreases (ssk, k2tog) and double decreases (sssk, k3tog), triple decreases (ssssk, k4tog) and nupps (can be replaced by beads).
loose enough to make the lace visible when the shawl is blocked (depends on the yarn & needles)
I'm a lifelong crafter, but settled on knitting in university when I wanted sweaters but couldn't afford to buy them. My first knitting love was lace. I'm sure I'll keep returning to lace, but there are so many other fun techniques to explore as well!
