The Lotus Blossom Shawl uses two traditional Shetland lace patterns, Razor Shell and Madeira Wave, which together create the suggestion of graceful lotus blossoms on long stems. The shawl is worked by casting on three stitches at the middle top of the shawl, then increasing down the center and side edges to create the triangle. Recommended for Advanced Beginners/Intermediates.
