Wings to Heaven Shawl

Announcing the debut of my newest shawl design...

Wings to Heaven is a fun and easy shawl to knit in a shape that stays put on the shoulders. The lace pattern forms rays that radiate out from the neck and ends with an optional heart at the bottom edge and a picot border. The blue and pink version pictured here was knit with a fingering weight handspun yarn from Targhee wool on size 6 needles. This sample shawl does not use the heart at the border.

The 6-page pattern includes line-by-line written directions, a lace chart, and a cast on tutorial. The pattern is written to use fingering weight yarn with options to knit it in lace to worsted weight (or even handspun), and instructions for knitting a larger shawl. The fingering weight version pictured above uses only 350-400 yards of yarn.

The darker blue sample is a scarf sized version of the pattern with the heart edge option. Here's a close up picture of the heart edge. A scarf size can be knit with about 150 yards of fingering weight or 200 yards of lace weight.

The pattern can be found in my Ravelry pattern store.

All money from sales of this pattern will be donated to the Mercy Corp.

I love the effect the pink one has due to the color change, it looks like ripples in the water.

Great design, I imagine it stays put a lot better than the plain triangle.

Impressive as this design is, even more impressive is your continuing caring about others. What a lovely legacy, dedicating this pattern to your friend.
