This is a pretty lace shawl knitting kit. It features hand dyed Ancient Arts Superwash yarn, a color coordinated shawl pin, and the Orenburg shawl pattern.
It's an elegant yet easy pattern that brings the beauty of traditional Orenburg lace together with a contemporary shawlette form. The pattern is knitted in three stages. First the lace bottom border, then the stitches are picked up along one side of the border to knit the main body and shaped with short rows. Finally the top border is knit onto the main body, almost no binding off required.
