A great shawl for first time lace knitters

I have collaborated with a New Zealand yarn company The Woven on two shawls. Both shawls were based on the idea of relaxing, enjoyable knitting. Pentala is the first of these patterns that’s now available on Ravelry. The Woven also sells kits for the shawl (including the pattern).

Pentala is a rectangular shawl knit on the bias. It has familiar garter stitch interspersed with pretty lace panels. The lace is engaging yet easy to knit and the pattern has both written and charted instructions for those sections. Whether you’ve knit lace before or not, I’m sure you’ll enjoy knitting this shawl!
