Project Love: Simple and modern lace shawls

July 5, 2020

Beautiful lace shawls don’t have to mean complicated charts and difficult stitch patterns.

Modern lace shawls can be minimalistic with clean lines and sophisticated simplicity. They’re engaging yet relaxing to knit, and often quick to make.

Simple combinations of yarn overs and a handful of basic stitches result in shawls that look a lot more difficult than they really are.

Just have a look at these gorgeous shawls made by knitters around the world! All of these are great as first lace projects, too!
