Spanish Ladders

Pattern Description:

This is a very straightforward top down shawl which includes instructions for using two colors, as well as the option for a larger shawl. Instructions are charted and include a choice to knit the top of the shawl using either vertical or horizontal striping!

When I began to formulate this shawl, I had in mind something geometrically striking, simple in its execution, yet dramatic in the resulting lace fabric. As the concept evolved, I realized my Spanish heritage was really influencing the direction of the design.
