This design was inspired by a beautiful stained glass window I saw in a Cathedral in Ireland

The shawl consists of 6 identical segments. It is knit in the round until the circular border is reached. The points are knit back and forth. The pattern is charted.

It has 4 different lace pattern representing the glass areas and uses twisted stitches for texture in the frame.

Please note: If you do NOT respect the copy-right and share the pattern with others, The heere be Dragone will fly in and tangle all your stash and eat all your chocolate.
