Twisted Pattern Line - Shawls, Ooh La Lace - from PDX Knitterati
Designed by Michele Bernstein (PDX Knitterati). This pattern was originally released as a part of Twisted’s Shawlette Club in May 2013. A life-long love affair with all things French is the inspiration for this lacy edged shawlette. The knitting begins at the lower edge with waves of lace like a can-can dancer's frilly petticoat, and continues with a row of iconic Eiffel Towers. This crescent shawlette is shaped with simple short rows, and finished with a garter stitch eyelet border at the upper edge. Ooh la la! Yarn – 325 (425) yards fingering-weight yarn.
