I’ve always loved to read. As a child books were my refuge, my shelter, and my passport to all places. Some destinations attainable, some not. Reading offered me shelter, enraptured me, providing joy sometimes and sadness others.
Holding a new book in my hands was like holding potential personified. I savored flipping past the flyleaf protecting the pages in a new book, my gateway to the universe. And I took flight.
This shawl is constructed of a main body with a knit-on lace edging. The body is constructed in a traditional triangle method. The edging is knit on and short rows are used to shape the edging around the center point of the body.
Written instructions are provided for all charts, so you may work from the charts or the written instructions.
Yarn substitution may result in a change in estimated yardage, gauge and finished size of your individual project.
