  • Acorn - Shawl

    Acorn is a very modern take on a lace shawl, embodying the essence of ash alberg’s “Lace for All” aesthetic: A geometric, easy-to-memorize lace pattern worked in a heavier-weight, sheepy wool, resulting in a shawl that can (and should!) be worn by anyone. It’s triangular shape and garter stitch borders make it perfect for wearing bandana-style or over the shoulders. Instructions are provided both in chart and written form.
