Bright, jewel-toned bands of simple lace flow through a speckled river of garter stitch in this graceful, fingering-weight shawl. Each lace band represents an Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol (flax, house, lotus) and teaches a new, simple lace stitch that is easy to memorize and a treat to learn.

Skill Level: Easy

Gauge: 20 sts and 22 ridges (22 purl-bump ridges = 44 rows) = 4” 10 cm in Garter Stitch after wet blocking
