Inspired by the flint arrowheads found at the Conygar Hill barrow in Dorset, this crescent shawl is a perfect Spring cover-up.
Light and airy, this easy to memorise lace pattern uses only ssk, k2tog and sk2p decreases and regular yarnovers. Bordered with a double-sided floral lace pattern to mimic the flowers which grow on the barrow, it is edged with a simple pointed garter motif which makes it easy to thread through blocking wires when shaping.
The instructions are both written and charted out, and a tally chart is provided with repeat quantities and stitch counts throughout the pattern.
