Grace Akhrem Constantinople Shawl PDF
The Constantinople Shawl by Grace Akhrem is pure simplicity and elegance. Knit in a fingering weight yarn, the shawl's body is plain stockinette stitch, drawing the viewer’s eye to the lace panel that runs along one side. The serrated lace edge is a little detail that gives interest to the whole piece. The lace pattern is in written form only.
