Pattern Description:

Designed by Patty Nance

The Lace Edging on this shawlette is worked at the same time as the shawlette body. A different color is used for body and edging. The color changes are worked using the intarsia technique.

Piece is worked from corner to corner with a series of increases at the end of each right-side row, followed by a series of decreases at the beginning of each right-side row, giving the piece its unusual shape. The curve that is formed along the edge opposite the lace can be folded under when worn.
