This is my first big lace project, and I loved it! It is from Interweave Knits' Fall 2006 issue and I used Peruvian Collection Baby Silk from www.elann.com. Hard to see the detail in the picture, unfortunately.

Thanks! landolphe, I used size 4 US needles and it took a little less than a month to make. It starts out quickly, but then since the rows get bigger and bigger, the edging takes a while!

Thanks again everyone! You're too kind.

Beautiful! Gotta have one! But your link didn't have the pattern.

The link was where I bought the yarn--the pattern is in Interweave Knits' Fall 2006 issue.

Mer posted this back in 2007 you might try pm'ing her to get a response back. I knitted this shawl and it looks about the same size as hers and I did it as written :thumbsup:

I just looked at the pattern and it is small if knit with fingering weight. I now have to forget about making it. I need Sport/DK weight and don't have any. oh well
Thanks for answering me tho!
