There is nothing quite like a soothing, understated project. Written for two sizes, the Large version could double as a luxurious blanket and the smaller size is perfect for everyday wear. This body of the shawl is comprised mostly of a sea of seed stitch. Increases along the outer edges. It is constructed sideways from tip to tip, beginning and ending with just one stitch. The shawl is then finished with a more challenging applied lace border.
On rows 2 and 6 of Chain Lace Edging, the k2tog's are worked using the second loop of the double yarn over (from the previous row) and the following knit stitch.
Slip all stitches purlwise.
