Celtic Hearts Shawl -- the pattern!

Have you been looking for a lace shawl pattern that is less complicated? Something that won't take you 6-8 weeks to knit, require tiny needles, and a thousand yards of very fine yarn?

Celtic Hearts is a seriously easy and fast knit. I designed it to be knit with dk weight yarn on size 8 needles. The sample shawl was knit from a single skein (350 yards) of Mountain Colors Weavers Wool Quarters in Rich Red.

The design is simple, striking, and beautiful. Diagonal lines radiate off a central motif and connect to a line of hearts in the border.

The triangle shape starts out small and grows as you knit each row. It's a versatile shape that can be worn around the shoulders, draped around your head and neck, or wrapped around your waist. Knit it smaller as a scarf or larger for a bigger wrap.

The pdf pattern is four pages long. There is one page of general instructions, two pages of line-by-line directions, and a final page of lace charts for the body and the border. I've included some lace knitting tips and information on how to upsize the pattern to knit a bigger shawl.

I try my best to make my patterns clear and easy to read. The pattern has been proofed and knitted twice to prevent errors. (That said, let me know if you find any.)

Vicki, I really like this pattern. Think I must add it to the stash even though I'm not done with the cascading leaves one yet.

Hooray! Just what I needed, order is on the way. I have been spinning Shetland for a couple of weeks, now I know what it is fated to become.

Hi Vicki...Celtic Hearts is a beautiful shawl! Any way you'd accept a bit more money, via money order, and snail mail a copy? I'm on dial-up and heavy downloads just don't happen out here in the rural burgs.
