In June 2015, my Ravelry group turned one year old. To celebrate, I let the group members decide on the elements of this shawl. It contains Japanese and German lace, texture and beads. As the anniversary of the group falls together with my cat’s birthday, I’ve decided to call the shawl Lena’s Shawl. You can choose between a Faroese shawl or a triangle with a little bit of shoulder shaping to help it stay put. Charted as well as written instructions are offered. Many thanks go to my tech editor cupani and my test knitter pinhappy.
