Lara Lace Shawl + Swatch

If lace is on your bucket list Lara is the pattern that will help you conquer a lace shawl!  All of the stitches used are fairly basic and the yarn is nice and thick which allows you to see your stitches easily, and the pattern builds on the previous row in a logical way so you can see where you are. Plus the pattern is very repetitive which means you’ll have it memorized in no time.

Pattern Notes

This pattern starts with a garter tab, a little rectangle. Afterwards, stitches are picked up along two other sides and increases create the triangle shape. After the first repeat the shape will be more obvious.

In each line of the written instructions there are asterisks, then later in the line it will say “work rep”, at this point work the instructions between the asterisks again, then continue from where you were.

Both a chart and written instructions are provided, they are equivalent, use whichever form you prefer (the charted instructions follow the written ones). The chart shows only right side rows.
