This pattern has really made the blog rounds, and it’s clear why. The repeat is easy to remember, you can make it any size you want, and the scallop-y edging is beautiful.

I don’t remember hearing much about the bindoff on the shawl, but it works really well. Those scallops need lots of stretch and the bindoff does just that. I may just try it on my next pair of socks, although I’m not sure how it would look against a rib.
Specs (do you really need specs on this one?)
Pattern Leaf Lace Shawl by Evelyn Clark — distributed by Fiber Trends
Yarn Twinkletoes Sock Yarn. This is not the world’s softest yarn. After the first soak the water turned a bright pink, but after rinse the second soak barely turned a color at all. I put in a healthy dose of deep conditioner and that seems to have helped. I’m not particularly sensitive so I don’t anticipate it bothering me. Plus, Deb contacted the dyer and she’s changing the yarn she’s using! This is really good news because she’s a great dyer!
Needles Addi Natura 3.75mm (US 5)
Measurements, etc. It’s 48 inches wide by 21 inches high in the center. I did 9 repeats (I think). I made it to wear under my coats so I didn’t want it any larger. And that was good, because I was ready to cast off by the time I did the last repeat!
