Pattern description from Vogue Knitting, Winter 2007/08: “Lily Chin’s ivory shawl is knit in a openwork lace pattern from the neck down to three mitered points - one at each side and at the center back.”

“Allover lace shawl with mitered corners, worked from the neck down. Shown on page 71.”


  • 5 1¾oz/50g skeins (each approx 137yd/126m) of Lily Chin Signature Collection/CNS Yarns Greenwich Village (nylon/acrylic/mohair) in #5557 winter white
  • Size 10 (6mm) circular needle 29”/74cm length or size to obtain gauge
  • Size E-4 (3.5mm) crochet hook
  • Stitch markers


  1. Use of circular needle is to accommodate the large number of sts. Do not join, but work back and forth in rows.
  2. Shawl is worked from the neck-edge down with 3 miter points and half-miter points at side edges.
