New Pattern - The Lucilla Drake Shawl

I released a new shawl pattern on Friday. It's worked with a classic top down construction technique. It starts from a small garter stitch strip of knitting.

If you are new to this technique I have a post with more detail here.

The lace pattern in this shawl is created with stacked hearts. They end with eyelets which create a scalloped bottom edge. The entire shawl is charted. It can be made larger easily by repeating Charts 3 and 4 any number of times before completing the final chart for the border.

You can find the pattern here.

The name Lucilla Drake is a character from Agatha Christie's Sparkling Cyanide. The detective story has two versions, one a short story and the other a novel. The novel features Colonel Race as the detective while the short story uses the more well known Poirot. The novel uses the basics of the short story,  but changes a number of details as Christie rewrote her own work.
