June 2007 Pattern Contest Winner - Lace Wannabe by Hannah Merritt

Please help us to congratulate Hannah for June's winning entry! This terrific summery pattern is a great introduction to simple lace work. This shawl is approximately an advanced beginner level of difficulty, so you don't have to be an expert to love making this shawl!
This shawl is a lightweight cotton semi-circular shawl, perfect for summer, and perfect for that new knitter wanting to start doing some lace. Not only are there some yarn overs, but this also has a very easy knitted-on border. Learning how to do that is essential for a lot of traditional lace patterns out there. The shawl has a unique beginning - a 4 stitch garter strip is knit, then stitches are picked up along the left side and along the cast-on edge, creating the slightly curved bottom. So many shawl patterns are the traditional pointy triangle, which, let's face it, aren't the most flattering for some of us. The rounded, short bottom falls around-about the waist, but is wide enough to completely cover the shoulders in any fashion you want.
