Bulky yarn is awesome. It is fast to knit and provides almost instant gratification. But it is, well, bulky and it can be a challenge to find patterns that will allow me to indulge in my love of bulky yarns all year round. That is where lace comes in! Combining the openwork of lace with larger yarns yields bold, graphic designs with big impact.
To create the oversized holes in this shawl I use a bit of lace magic. On one row I have double decreases separated with double yarn overs, resulting in some missing stitches. But the stitches come back when you work four stitches into that double yarn over on the return row. This balances out the stitch count and creates a supersized hole!
This pattern can be worked entirely from the written instructions or utilizing the provided charts.
