Plainfield Lace Shawl
This is a pattern for a wrap. It is knitted in the manner that many of the traditional lace shawls were knitted, however, it is knitted with a heavy weight fingering yarn, making it a much faster and easier project than a Shetland shawl. The center panel is a “true” lace, and the border is knitted on after the center panel has been completed. There are two distinct lace stitches contained within this pattern, both of which blend together nicely.
The edging is knitted on in the typical Shetland manner.
Skill Level: Intermediate + - Advanced (assuming a very good knowledge of lace knitting).
The pattern for the stitches are both charted and written out line by line.
The sample was knitted with Handmaiden’s Casbah yarn in colorway Violet, however any heavy weight fingering yarn or sport weight yarn will work for this pattern.
