Skyline Shawl

pattern price: $4.99

Skyline Shawl is a pretty crescent shaped lace shawl that puts the spotlight on two repeats of stunning Lotus Lace. Like its companion Waveline Shawl, Skyline Shawl is worked from the bottom edge up with easy short row shaping to form the crescent. The Lotus Lace pattern is a bit more challenging and will require more attention than the lace pattern on its counterpart. The result will be well worth it! Knit in a delicious hand-dyed fingering weight, Skyline Shawl is the perfect accessory for a summer evening out. As a fairly quick knit, it’s a good one for gift-knitting, too.
