The Vivien Barnaby Shawlette

This shawl is worked with a classic top down construction technique. It starts from a small garter stitch strip of knitting. The lace pattern appears surprisingly complex yet is formed with only four pattern rows. The entire shawlette is charted. It can easily be made larger by repeating Charts 2 and 3 any number of times more before completing the final chart for the border.

Revision issued April 2014 on page 9 Chart 3 Left, added a yarn over in Row 15, Stitch column 18 (left side of page)

The name Vivien Barnaby comes from an Agatha Christie book of short stories "The Mysterious Mr. Quin." In Agatha Christie's Autobiography, she claims that Quin and a second recurring character in the stories, Satterthwaite became two of her favourite characters.
