The Louise Laxton 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 is created with stacked diamonds and ends with half diamonds that create a scalloped bottom edge. The entire shawlette is charted. It can be easily made larger by repeating Charts 2 and 3 any number of times more before completing the final chart for the border.

The name Louise Laxton comes from an Agatha Christie short story, The Case of the Caretaker. Louise is described as an object of envy due to her looks and money.
