La Fontaine

Inspired by the “common” texture-and-lace shawls of the Shetland Islands, this shawlette is a fun, quick knit that yields spectacular results. A traditional knit-and-purl pattern has been paired with the equally traditional Crest of the Wave Shetland lace pattern to create a thoroughly modern accessory. Knit with just 440 yards of fingering weight yarn, it’s an ideal “gotta have it” knit with almost instant gratification.

Pattern includes both charts and line-by-line instructions, plus both US Standard and metric sizing.
