Olatz shawl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, lace, cast on, cast off, crochet chain stitch

Pattern Description:

This pattern is available in written and charted form.

I love the idea of knitted lace but I don't think I am a very lacy person. This shawlette has a hint of geometric lace at the top with rows of eyelets that lead down to an arched edging. Olatz is a Basque name as it reminds me of the many beautiful buildings I visited on a trip to the Basque region some years ago.

Rather than the typical lace or fingering weight, Olatz is knitted up in a worsted weight to ward off chills.


18 sts and 24 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 54" wide at top and 24" long in center


  • 500 yards worsted weight yarn, US 8 32" circular needle, crochet hook, scrap yarn
