Kate Atherley Rickenbacker Shawl PDF
The Rickenbacker Shawl by Kate Atherley is the perfect solution to a lace knitters’ conundrum: how to knit a chic black shawl that will go with everything but won’t make you go blind trying to knit it. This triangular shawl features lacy stripes that are about as simple as you can get and they’re always worked in the same place, eliminating the need for counting or markers and making it very easy to stay on track. This shawl is worked on the bias, causing the stripes to fall diagonally, and the resulting fabric drapes beautifully. Lace pattern is both charted and written out.
