InstructionsThis shawl is knit in one of those lovely laces based on the Shetland feather and fan stitch. There is so much movement and interest in the pattern that it may look more difficult to do than it really is.
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Romantic, Traditional, Classic
handspun 2-ply laceweightr yarn of silk/merino/angora
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to design a beautiful shawl using the limited amount of silk/merino/angora yarn I had handspun.
What are you most proud of?
Starting at the tip of the shawl and increasing to whatever width you want, it becomes a lovely fan-shaped neck scarf, shoulder wrap, or full-size shawl. The bound-off long edge can be finished in your choice of dramatic points or graceful scallops.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
You can make this shawl to your desired size (length will be half of width). Guidelines for laceweight yarn 200 yards for 32" wide, 600 yards for 54", 1000 yards for 72", 6 stitches/inch. US 5 / 3.75 mm needles suggested. Easily adjusts to other weights of yarn with corresponding adjustment in needle size and yardage.
