116 Desiderata PDF
Desiderata is a lovely crescent lace shawl from Fiber Dreams. Named after the first wife of Charlemagne, Desiderata starts at the center top with a tab cast on. It then increases quickly as you work toward the bind off edge. There’s a bit of stockinette at the top, but not all that much, as most of this design’s 117 rows are lace. The lace pattern is easy to knit, every wrong-side row throughout the design is the same, and the overall pattern easy to work, especially once you find your rhythm.
