Rona Lace Shawl: a Love Story

On an outing with my husband, I picked up three skeins of Misti Alpaca laceweight yarn in Maize colorway. I had to find the perfect pattern to go with my beautiful new yarn: something springy and flowery to go with the spring-green color. I finally found it in the Rona Lace Shawl pattern from Knitpicks. Armed with my trusty Boye interchangeable needles (US size 6), I set to work, and a month of very enjoyable work later, I had this shawl! (Incidentally, it matches my favorite summer dress!)

    Wow! I'd love the pattern for this, but unfortunately the link for the Rona Lace Shawl from Knitpicks doesn't provide it :( I was hoping maybe you would have the pattern or know where to find it? Thanks!

    Absolutely stunning. And worth every stitch. Lace knitting is beautifully addictive.

    Wow, simply beautiful. Im a knitter who has just recently begun doing some lace work. I like it however not really a mindless pattern where you can sit and watch TV.
