Multiplicity Lace Shawl


Esther Chandler


This shawl is called Multiplicity because it can be worn in lots of different ways. The shawl is trapezium shaped, but could be made into a triangular version if you prefer (tips on how to do this are included in the pattern).

The piece is worked flat with the edges worked after without the need to rejoin the yarn (so only two ends to weave in)! I have also included a chart to help those who prefer it.

I hope you all enjoy trying this pattern, and let me know if you find any other ways to wear it.

Materials List

400m sock (fingering) weight yarn

3mm crochet hook

17 x 12mm buttons – or you will need to adjust the buttonholes to suit the number and size of buttons you have


If you are making a triangular shawl you will need more yarn (I estimate about 600 yards).

Finished Size

127cm long, 27cm wide (once blocked).
