Kate Atherley - Herringbone lace Scarf & Shawl
There are two versions of this design: a rectangular scarf and a semi-circular shawl.
The scarf is a terrific first lace project – there’s only one pattern row, with a simple 12-stitch repeat.
The shawl is a great next step: the construction is a little bit more challenging, but very rewarding.
The pattern notes provide instructions on proper finishing and blocking, and I’ve included details on my favourite stretchy bind-off for lace to ensure the semi-circular shawl looks its best.
Both designs use a single ball of fingering weight yarn, keeping the price low and the project reasonably fast.
