Lancet Shawl

Lancet Shawl is modeled after the Gothic lancet arches favored by Venetians, with the elaborate points of mimicking the dramatic arches in buildings across the canals. One of three in a series, the Lancet Shawl uses lace weight to emphasize the openwork lace motif.

This pattern required all 420 yards/384 meters in the skein to knit the sample shown. Plan your yarn selection accordingly.

About Arch Shawls

Comprised of 3 patterns, the Arch Shawls collection features stitch motifs inspired by elements of Venetian architecture. I don’t claim to be an expert on architecture, but the vast buildings throughout Italy inspired me to create shawls based on the styles used in their unique structures.

All three shawls are single-skein projects and worked using short rows, each one making use of a cabled, lace, or textured motif.

Patterns may be purchased individually ($6 each) or as a set of 3 ($16).
