Luxury Shawl & Scarf Pattern
  0 customer reviews

The Luxury Shawl & Scarf set is the perfect way to give lace knitting a try. Knit the scarf version first - knitting a smaller size with fingering weight yarn will make for an easy transition into lace knitting. Next, move onto the shawl version - larger than the scarf, it is also more delicate and lightweight as it is knit out of a thinner lace weight yarn. Although lace knitting might seem intimidating at first, this simple garter and lace stitch pattern has you doing lace on only one of twelve rows. Simple to learn and even easier to memorize, you will be knitting lace in no time at all!
