In this beautiful shawl lace diamonds offer a delicate look when combined with a floral edge and loop bind off. Knitted from the top down in one piece, this seamless accessory will become a much-loved wardrobe staple.
The pattern provides the lace instructions in both full written form and charts. It also includes a clearly illustrated tutorial for the use of ‘lifelines’ – an optional form of risk management that many knitters like to use when knitting lace.
The finished shawl measures 178cm/70″ along the top edge and is 97cm/38″ deep at the centre, as shown in the blocking diagram on page 7.
