A Bias for Lace is a slightly asymmetrical triangular sampler shawl knit in one piece from the top corner down. When worn, the lace patterns fall gracefully on the bias. It can be knit using one color or up to six alternating colors and is suitable for any weight of yarn.


Beginning with just a few stitches, the shawl increases in size on one edge to create a nicely curving neck edge, making the shawl fun and interesting to knit and easy to wear.


You will need 650 – 750 yards of fingering to sport weight yarn; solid or semi solids work best. Sample knit with Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift fingering weight and US 5 (3.75mm) needles.


Skill level: advanced beginner, experienced lace knitter. Being able to “read” your knitting will be helpful.


8 pages; both written and charted directions with stitch counts are provided. Pattern only, not a finished lace shawl.
