I love frilly clothes. Anything with a flounce or a bit of lace makes me happy. And there is nothing like two rows of lace to make you feel a bit flirtatious and girly.
The basic structure of the shawl is simple and knits up quickly. The knitted-on lace edging may scare a few of you... so with that in mind the pattern includes three links to free video tutorials I did for this shawl. I know... it always helps to see something in action!
PS: there is a separate pattern for the "baby" shawl shown in one of the pictures. It is called: "Baby Ruffles."

My mother was a big crafter. I cannot remember a moment when we were not creating something in the kitchen, in the sewing room or on the needles. I have continued that tradition with my own son. He thinks it is quite grand to do a "project' with mommy! And I think it is quite grand to have someone to do a "project" with.
