surging river

bulky lace shawl

This blanket-like wrap is worked from the bottom up, starting with a very simple four-row lace pattern. Decreases are then worked at the edges and center to make a shallow but generous triangle. Blocking spreads out the lace edge for a large wingspan that will keep you cozy all winter. Work it up in a lofty, bulky wool such as Imperial Yarn Native Twist for a plush but lightweight shawl.
