Marry me shawl
What a lovely piece this would be for an informal wedding. Imagine wearing this shawl at a ceremony by the ocean or in the mountains. Of course one can also imagine this one in a black, it will be more of a gothic piece. My point is, whatever color or for whatever occasion you knit it for, you won’t be disappointed.
The blocked shawl measures 65” in length and 17.5” in width. The shaw can easily be made longer and the kit would allow you to add more length as well.
The pattern is loaded with interesting stitch sequences that all work so well together to make this a great piece to knit and consequently wear.
The pattern is written and all lace parts are charted for your knitting pleasure.
