Romance Shawl

The Romance Shawl features pretty stocking stitch lace knitting patterns specially designed to create a romantic impression. There are hearts in a rosebud trellis, cupid's darts, a chain of hearts and a unique double edging.

The shawl is started at the middle top and increases at the sides and middle to create a triangular shape. Lace is worked on one side only and the return rows are purled. The trickiest bit is picking up the stitches at the lower edge for the double edging, but the pattern includes helpful hints. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Advanced Intermediate lace knitters.
