I designed this shawl for my boss wedding. She is a very important person in my life and I wanted to make something truly special for her. I decided to take the plunge and design my first shawl. The full square version is designed in top down raglan style using DK weight yarn and larger needles, which provides drape to the mesh body. The lace border and yarn add interest and character to the piece. It will stretch a great deal with blocking, which should be accounted for when deciding on the final length.
Instructions and schematics are given to work shawlette or triangular, trapezoidal, or full-square shawl version. Pattern also includes chart for body and border.

I started very young. Basic knit sts taught by my Ma and crochet sts by my aunt. Beyond that I am mostly self-taught. Started designing straight away. My first project ever, being a boat-neck sweater for me. It was perfect!
