DAVIDA is a large triangle shaped shawl which combines lace pattern with garter stitches. The white sample is very light - using only 150g of Lace weight yarn in Mohair/ Silk, holding two strands together. The yellow sample shown is made in Fingering weight yarn, with a final weight of 200g. It is such a delight to wear!

The pattern is a recipe for “any weight” that can be translated across several yarn bases. It is very contemplative to knit, because there are a few pattern rows to be memorized only.
Repetitive increases are giving the shawl its triangular shape.
I am sure, you will love it!
