Quadrilateral, a broomstick lace shawl


Marie Segares/Underground Crafter


This pattern is a great introduction to broomstick lace. It’s a simple yet stunning shawl with great drape.

The revised pattern includes both a written pattern using U.S. terms and a stitch symbol chart (copyright KnitCircus but used with permission). Additionally, there is a photo tutorial, so don’t be afraid if you’re a broomstick lace newbie!

The shawl pin in the second picture is one of my favorites, by Michelle’s Assortment.
