Mermaid Shawl - free pattern!

Be a sexy siren in this drapey shawl. The main lace pattern resembles fish scales cascading down, with a spine down the center and water waves pooling at the bottom. Beware, this is true lace, and there is patterning on both sides of the fabric, including two types of double-decreases from the wrong side, a third type of double-decrease from the front, and double yarn-overs. The shawl is knit from the center outward, and the edging is continuous with the shawl—you’ll have only the beginning and cast-off ends to weave in at the end! The lace pattern is adapted from Shower Stitch, from Barbara Walker’s First Treasury. The entire shawl is charted out, and the size can be easily adjusted by varying the number of lace repeats.

The pattern is up for free on Ravelry. Click the button to access (you don't have to be a Raveler).
