Dansie shawl pattern
The curves in this unusually shaped shawl follow the body and enable you to style it many ways. You can even create a collar, as you can see in the photos. The tail end makes it easier to bring the fabric around your neck without it feeling too bulky and yet adding some interest. Your knitting starts out with a beautiful and very rhythmic lace portion, followed by sections of garter stitch that are interrupted by eyelet rows and finally finishing off with a tail end so to speak.
Written pattern with added charts for the lace pattern.
