Covington Shawl

Feminine and lacey… a classic, full shawl suitable for formal evenings, weddings or chilly nights at the seashore. Covington is a triangular shawl, which begins at the back neck with just enough increases to form gentle shoulder shaping. The pattern is knit flat with straight or circular needles. Minimum knowledge of lace increases and decreases is required. Fully charted, Covington also has written instructions and is size adjustable. A variety of yarn fibers, weights and needle sizes are suitable. The project begins with the formation of a single petal and is finished with a total of 15 petals lining the hem edge. Strategically placed increases and decreases provide perfect radiation, flowing drape and ease in blocking. The featured shawl measures 72” across the wingspan and 45” from back neck to tip.
