Pattern Description:

Gypsy Lace Knitted Shawl.

Make this easy to knit shawl in variegated worsted weight yarn. Sample was knit in premium acrylic yarn: Red Heart with Love in Fruit Punch.

This is an easy to knit half circle shawl that is constructed with repeats of easy to knit eyelet then a deep hem of vintage Old Shale lace that is accentuated with blocking and pressing.

Make this your first lace shawl project. I provide a row by row table that you can mark off as you knit each row of this shawl. This project is a variation on my Dripping with Lace shawl pattern which is made with lace weight yarn. If you are afraid of such a fine weight yarn, try this shawl first!

From tip to tip, the finished shawl measures 36 inches wide and 18 inches deep from neck to bottom edge.

Stitches are explained and help files are provided.

Contact me for any help while knitting this beautiful shawl.
