FTS2014 Flower Basket Lace Shawl
Design by Evelyn A. Clark
Stockinette stitch lace creates flowers in oval baskets. Knit from the center back neck down, the lace flows into a simple, scalloped horizontal edging. Since the edging can be worked at the end of any 10-row lace repeat, this shawl can be worked in a variety of sizes.
Size: Instructions for 3 sizes in 4 yarn weights.
Measurements are approximate and will vary with yarn used. Size can be easily changed by adding or subtracting pattern repeats.
