The StellaLuna Knit Lace Shawl Pattern is the staple your wardrobe's missing. Beautiful and stylish, it's hard to believe this shawl is handmade. The stunning lace knitting pattern makes it the perfect shawl to layer over a dress for a more elevated look. The StellaLuna Knit Lace Shawl Pattern was the answer to an age old solution with knitters— having to cast off way too many stitches when finishing any triangle shawl pattern. Knit from the bottom, this piece decreases as it goes. So, while you might have to cast on quite a few stitches, you'll end with only a few.
NotesThe shawl on the picture was knitted with nupps (A bobble-like texture stitch with origins in Estonian lace); however, if you don’t want to bother – they can be omitted and a designated stitch is knitted on a RS and purled on a WS. Or, if you want to make the shawl very fancy, you can add beads in place of nupps

Instructions for StellaLuna Knit Lace Shawl Pattern:
The shawl is knitted in tiers: Scheme 1 (bottom tier) is knitted once, Scheme 2 (middle tiers) is knitted 3 times, Scheme 3 (top of the shawl) is knitted once.
Start: Cast on 249 stitches on bigger needles. I really recommend using a short-tail method, or simple e-wrap. If you are using a long-tail method you might consider to cast on onto two needles and pull one out after you are done. The goal is to make the bottom row very loose for good stretching during the blocking. Knit the next row.
Bottom tier: Continue with smaller needles. Knit the right side of the shawl according to Scheme 1. After you reach the middle stitch, follow the same scheme FROM LEFT TO RIGHT to knit the left side of the shawl. Middle stitch is knitted once.
Middle tier 1: Knit according to Scheme 2. The fragment of scheme in gray (repeat) will be knitted 7 times. As before: once you have reached the middle stitch do the trick of following the scheme from left to right.
Middle tier 2: Knit according to Scheme 2. The fragment of scheme in gray (repeat) will be knitted 5 times. As before: once you have reached the middle stitch do the trick of following the scheme from left to right.
Middle tier 3: Knit according to Scheme 2. The fragment of scheme in gray (repeat) will be knitted 3 times. As before: once you have reached the middle stitch do the trick of following the scheme from left to right.
Top: Knit according to Scheme 3. As before: once you have reached the middle stitch do the trick of following the scheme from left to right.
Finish: You will have 9 stitches on your needle at this point. RS: Knit 3 together, 3 times. WS: Purl 3 together. Pull the yarn through the last stitch.
