ABOUT THE PATTERN
The Gratitude Shawl is a simple but gorgeous crescent shawl containing three basic lace motifs and some garter. It is a great shawl design for an adventurous beginner wanting to try some lace patterns.
I designed the Gratitude Shawl with Thanksgiving in mind, to evoke the feelings of peaceful, calming contentment that come when I think of the things I am grateful for. The pattern motifs remind me of experiences that I am thankful for: situations that open my mind; paths that don’t go as planned; heart-enlarging experiences; and simple, everyday life. I expect these are things we can all relate to and be thankful for, and I hope that, as you knit this shawl, you will take time to reflect on experiences you are grateful for in your life.
This shawl would look gorgeous in speckled or tonal yarn. It would be beautiful as a one-color or two-color shawl, or with each section in a different color.
