Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Very basic lace
  • Knitting chart reading

Pattern Description:

Knit from the top down, Sanur has enough lace work to keep an expert interested while still being the perfect beginner's lace shawl.

The pattern includes two finished sizes: 37 x 80" for a full-size shawl and 23 x 47" for a smaller shawlette. The larger size requires approximately 500 yds of yarn; the smaller one requires just 375 yds.

The lower edge can be blocked to have scallops or to be straight. Knitter's choice!

Beautiful hand-dyed fingering weight yarn and large(-ish) size US7 needles will ensure this design is fun to knit--and easy to wear.

Happy Knitting!


Gauge is not crucial to this project. In stockinette stitch, 22 sts and 30 rows = 4" unblocked.
