This shawl design was inspired by the bold circle (“cirkel” in Dutch) featured in the border. This wonderfully eye catching lace reminds me of the bridges of Paris, crossing the Seine. Cirkels is knit sideways from tip to tip. Increases / decreases are worked one stitch every other row, creating a shallow triangle. The lace border features triple yarn overs, giving it its distinct circles. Because the border is knit at the same time as the body of the shawl, time needed for finishing is minimal.
This pattern features a stockinette body with a simultaneously knit garter stitch lace edging. Stitches used include knit, purl, k2tog, kfb, M1, yo, triple yo and a centered double decrease. This pattern is suitable for the intermediate knitter.
