Pattern Description:

This shawl consists of garter stitch areas and an easy to knit feather pattern. You start in the upper center and work downwards in rows. First you work only in garter stitch, building a triangle. Just before this gets boring, you start the feather pattern. Due a variation on the increases, there is no corner at the lower center as usual and the shawl looks like cut off. The pattern is written without charts and is very suitable for those variegated lace yarns that drown most lace designs.
The pattern gives instructions for the pictured shawl and also for a shawl that can be worked to any size (if you would like to use more than 100g of the stated yarn of if you would like to use a different yarn with different yardage). Also, with this any-size-pattern the proportion of the feather pattern can be varied to your desire.


You don't need to get gauge on this pattern, but for orientation I'd like to state my gauge:
30 stitches and 60 rows in garter stitch, unblocked, are 10 cm (4 inch)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • wingspan 130 cm (51 inch), length 50 cm (19.75 inch) as pictured
  • or work unti you are out of yarn aka any size you like!


  • Alte K1/4nste Filigran, colorway Knigin der Nacht, 1 skein
  • or any other laceweight yarn
  • circular needle size 3mm (US 2.5) (with medium knitting tension; see also gauge)

You Will Also Need:

  • 4 stitch markers, tapestry needle
