Product details

The Aeshna shawl is worked down and outwards from a garter-tab cast-on at the top centre. The garter-stitch body is interrupted by four lace inserts, which are shaped with short rows. The same Little Arrowhead Lace, an easy 4-row repeat pattern worked with right- and left-leaning decreases, yarn overs, and central decreases, runs along the bottom edge of the shawl and is finished with a matching picot bind-off. Both charts and written instructions are provided for the lace sections.

Yarn and Needles

The pattern is written for DK-weight yarn and uses roughly equivalent amounts of main and contrasting colour. For the samples, 100 g of each colour were sufficient, but you may wish to factor in additional yardage (especially when not working at the recommended gauge).

Suggested yarns include Illustrious by West Yorkshire Spinners and Dos Tierras by Malabrigo Yarn.

The shawl is worked flat, but a circular needle, 80 cm (32’’) long is recommended to accommodate the large number of stitches.
