Stage Whisper

Introducing my latest design: the Stage Whisper shawl! This lacy little shawl was a collaboration with the lovely gents at Leading Men Fiber Arts using their Diva merino/silk blend.

Just as a stage whisper is intended to be heard, this light and airy shawl will speak volumes. Its curved bands of lace and garter stitch are a visual interpretation of sound waves carried out over an audience. This pattern features an unusual construction, large swaths of relaxing garter stitch, and an easily memorized lace pattern with both written and charted instructions provided.

Span: 63 inches
Height at point: 20 inches

22 sts/32 rows = 4 inches in garter stitch
