Pattern Description:

Orchid Shawl is a triangular lace shawl knitted from the top down. It has patterning on the right side rows only, wrong side rows are purled. The pattern is charted and beads are optional. The main lace stitch has often been referred to as a waterlily but when I look at it I see an orchid.


Gauge is not crucial, use needles to obtain a desired lace effect.
