Holden Shawl by Mindy Wilkes
This pattern has been a Ravelry superstar for more than 5 years, and it's easy to see why. Simple stockinette, breezy lace, and a picot bindoff are the perfect elements to highlight a Knitcircus yarn.
Written for 3 sizes, this versatile pattern includes written instructions as well as charts and has been professionally edited. We used a 100g/440yd fingering weight gradient cake to knit the smallest size for a quick-knit shawl.
"Holden is a classic top-down triangular shawl. Inspired by the waves breaking along the shore, the shawl features wavy lace and is finished with a lovely picot edge."--Mindy Wilkes
