Knit from the top down, this shawl uses a pattern of increases and decrease to achieve a bat-like shape.
Knit as shown, the shawl has six sections which make it sit comfortably on your shoulders. One section can be omitted to use less yardage and have a straighter top edge.
Finished measurements: wingspan: 117 cm, depth: 56 cm; with wide lace edging, wingspan: 127 cm, depth: 63.5 cm
Gauge: 20 stitches to 10 cm in blocked stockinette
Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
