Pattern Description:

Primrose is an all-over lace shawl featuring a knitted-on lace border. The combination of the lace in the body of the shawl with the lace on the border is simply stunning. The shawl is started at the top neck and worked outward. Without cutting the yarn, additional stitches are cast on
and the lace edge is worked. Primrose is a great pattern for the shawl knitter looking for something new.
