Maggie is a treat to behold! It’s fairly easy and the perfect project for those wanting to jump into basic lace techniques. It’s also a joy for more advanced knitters to play around with some various color styles and stay relatively engaged.
This top-down triangular-shaped shawl works up beautifully with self-striping shawl yarn or mini-skeins. My sample uses a self-striping shawl yarn. This yarn can be yard to get, so I’ve listed the stripes as color A and the grey portion as color B to break up for easy substitutions.

If you desire a striping effect, you could use scrap yarn joined together with a Russian join to make up the color A yardage or alternate scraps every 10 rows.
