#MP-SORAYA | Soraya

Soraya is a name of Persian origin meaning “rich” or “princess”. You won’t need to be rich to make this shawl, but it could make you feel like a princess wearing it!

The lace is charted (no written instructions) and can be worked to make a small or large size shawl. Beads on the edging add a touch of glitter, whichever size you decide on.

Both of the suggested yarns fall in the "heavy fingering" to "light sport" weight category.

For experienced lace knitters.

For those who have already downloaded the PDF, please note that a new version has been uploaded. There is, however, no difference in the content, and the revision was made only for cosmetic reasons - on some printers, I discovered that the background of the boxes enclosing the text and photos on the cover page may print with a slight grey tinge, which has been corrected in new PDF.
