The Shale Beach Shawl features an elegantly simple allover chevron design, making it the perfect canvas for highlighting many of the beautiful tonal and hand-dyed yarns currently on the market. Additionally, the repetitive, allover lace pattern makes this shawl a wonderful pattern for beginning lace knitters. The pattern is fully charted, however, a few beginning rows are written out to aid novice chart readers in following along. This shawl is knit from the top down with two triangles separated by a narrow center panel. Nearly invisible increases are worked along the sides of this center panel, eliminating the ladder of yarn over increases seen down the center of many triangle shawl designs. The shawl may be worked in either lace weight yarn as is the photographed sample (held double-stranded) or in fingering weight yarn. The Shale Beach Shawl looks equally well dressed up or down and, while seemingly delicate and lightweight, will keep the chill from your shoulders on a cool evening.

Whether you are new to knitting or have been knitting since you can’t remember when, I hope that you will enjoy my patterns. I strive to keep my patterns as straightforward as possible given the techniques being applied. I don’t want someone relatively new to knitting to be intimidated by my patterns. Nearly all of my patterns are charted, but still include full written instructions, so no worries if you prefer not to use charts. I am always happy to hear from fellow knitters and welcome questions on any of my designs - before or after purchase. Knit happy!
