Angel Lace Shawl - complete!
This is the beautiful Angel Lace shawl, designed by Evelyn A. Clark for Fiber Trends. This is by far the easiest of Evelyn's shawls I've ever made (either that or I'm getting better at knitting!). The pattern is easy to remember and for those who are new to lace knitting, it has one row of just knitting (no increases or decreases, except of the YOs at the edges and center spine). I never use a "lifeline", but this one has one built in! The yarn is Filatura di Crosa 501, DK weight 100% superwash wool. I used 9 full balls to complete this shawl and a size 8 needle. It measures 78 inches across the top and 38 inches down the center...very generous! I've got enough yarn to make another and I'll be starting that one shortly. This shawl to 5 days to make.
Like my other shawls, this will be donated to the local cancer centre and will be given to a patient.
