I’ve always been incredibly drawn to things of the past, and tend to be a bit of an “old soul”. Due to this, when I set out to create Victoria, I drew from the Victorian era, wanting a lace texture that reminded me of the skirts worn back then that were domed and bell-shaped. I truly love the outcome!
Victoria is an engaging triangular-shaped shawl that’s worked along the bias, with lovely lace sections broken up with bits of garter stitch. This delightful shawl pattern features 3 sizes but can be made larger, if desired, quite mindfully.
Worked flat, Victoria contains written directions and charts. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you with your rows and stitch counts. Yardage for each section is given should you wish to turn this into a scrappy project!
