Cashmere Lace Shawl
It’s done! Here it is in the not-so-harsh light of a cloudy morning, unblocked but patted flat on a white rug:
It measures approximately 100cm (39 inches) square in this state. I’m sure blocking will add another couple of inches as it stretches. Some detail shots, too!
The patterns were adapted from charts appearing in The Knitted Lace Patterns of Christine Duchrow, volumes I and III. I’m pleased with the way my corners worked out. They’ll display better under blocking, but the designs meet up at the corners without truncation. The edging is a bit narrow to be in proportion, but I think that blocked it will also display better.
Looks lovely even without blocking 🙂
