Lacy Winged Shawl




Sometime last year at the annual dye day in South County I chose to dye some coned beige linen with purple and green. I only dyed a small quantity....maybe 310 yards and wondered for a long time what I should knit with it. I began Shapely Shawlette by Judy Pascal but I wasn't pleased with that pattern for my linen. Then I saw Iris's shawl and I knew it would be perfect for my linen. The shawl pattern is called Lacy Winged Shawl from March 28, 2007 Knitting Calendar. You can make it in any weight yarn up to sport weight. I used a laceweight linen ( about 200 yds) and a size 4 needle.

That really is a lovely color combination! It is always nice to find patterns that will work for those odd bits of yarn!
