TRISH DESIGNS

Optical Illusions Lacy Shawl

An interesting interlocking lace pattern forms cascades of ribbons and lace. Knitted from the neck down, shawl could be any length. Neckband is picked up and knitted in purl for a very stylish finish. The shawl is actually 3/4 of a square for a fit that drapes beautifully and easily stays on the shoulders.

Lower border is knitted point-by-point with just a bit of crocheting to bring the yarn from the finished point to the beginning of the next point to avoid having to cut the yarn and re-join it for each point. The stitches could also just be picked up and bound off if you don't crochet!

Written for bulky and sport weight yarn, although any weight in between would work.

Size: Adult, approximately 32” from neck to point, shorter version - 23”

Yardage (short and long versions)
Approximately 750 or 1,000 yards Bulky weight,
