Stratiform Shawl (Kira K Designs)
This deceptively easy shawl is a nice introduction to lace knitting, with layers of simple lace stitches, and a bead-accented lower edge. The ¾-circle shape lies nicely on the shoulders or can be wrapped around your neck for a modern look. The lace pattern is both written out and charted.
