Shawl You’ll Ever Need

This lovely lacy shawl is knit left to right using a relaxing, easy-to-memorize lace stitch pattern. As you knit, you will increase from the cast on end until you reach the body of the shawl. One end of the piece includes a pouch-like shape designed to fit around one shoulder to aid in easy wear. See our photo tutorial below for tips on how to style this project!

Skill Level: Intermediate

Size: 15” tall throughout the body of the shawl x 80” long.

The shoulder “pouch” measures approximately 9” from beginning of short row section to the bind off edge.
