PATTERN DETAILS

Arabella is a simple lace triangle shawl that looks a lot more complicated than it really is. Envisioned as a modern take on Regency fashion, this shawl adds a touch of dash and class to your wardrobe. Arabella was inspired by Arabella Strange, of the book Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell, as well as far too many Masterpiece Theater viewings over the winter! Knit in either fingering or lace weight yarn, this is a modular pattern that can be easily adjusted to fit the yarn or the size desired. By altering the number of repeats, you can change the size and look. There are several edging options included with the pattern, so you can pick the one that suits your yarn and taste. Use your favorite solid or semi solid yarn to show off the lace pattern to maximum effect. The pattern includes instructions for creating a small shawlette or scarf as well. Use written instructions or charts to meet your own comfort level.
