Painted Ladies shawl

This lovely Shawl pattern was inspired by the Painted Ladies of San Francisco. They are the beautiful and colorful Victorian House row houses, each with its own elegant, decorative trim.

The pattern is charted. The shawl body is knit, then the elegant, Victorian lace borders are added. It is possible, but not recommended, to knit the borders at the same time.

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.

I have been knitting for more years than I care to count. Long haired dogs inspired me to learned to spin in 1996 with a drop spindle. Spinning introduced me to alpacas and I fell in love. Hand spun yarn from our black alpaca demanded to be lace, so I tried my hand at designing in 1998. Lace has become my passion. My designs are quite unique, including many ‘picture’ shawls such as Heere Be Dragone as well as more traditional styles. I have over 40 published lace patterns all unique in style and design.
