Greenhorn shawl is designed for learning lace knitting. I used very simple lace patterns, but its combinations give a very nice look - not only for beginners!
As warm up you knit a stockinette stitch section, than you start with a double yo pattern. After then you add a new row to the pattern, and a new again, always only a very tiny change! Between lace patterns you will get some “rest time” with some stockinette knitting. You won’t notice: you are confident with lace knitting.
You are not a beginner? Don’t worry, this pattern will be a great relaxing no-brain project.
This shawl is a top down triangular shawl, begins with a garter tab.
I’ve written this pattern more detailed, as I do usual, to make it more easier to follow. The pattern contains charted and written instructions. Pattern is tested.
