This triangular shawl starts with just five stitches at the center back neck and grows out to deep scalloped points along the lower two edges. The main stitch pattern is number 42, from Knitting Lace: A Workshop with Patterns and Projects, by Susanna E. Lewis. It’s large enough to keep your shoulders warm, but small enough not to overwhelm a non-shawl wearer.
Width (across the longest side): 48 inches
Length (from center to point): 24 inches
About 350 yards sock weight yarn [sample is knit from about ¾ skein of Schaefer Anne (60% superwash merino wool, 25% mohair, 15% nylon; 560 yds/4 oz. skein)]
US size 6/4 mm 24-inch circular needle
Gauge: Not crucial for lace; select a needle which produces fabric you like, and creates good contrast between YOs and stitches.
