The Mary Marvell Shawl

This shawl is worked with a classic top down construction technique. It starts from a small garter stitch strip of knitting. The lace pattern creates a zigzag effect across the body of the shawl and ends with a scalloped edging. It is surprisingly delicate in appearance with the Aran weight yarn used. The entire shawl 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 Mary Marvell comes from an Agatha Christie short story "The Adventure of the Western Star". The character is an American film star who possessed a very large diamond which is stolen early in the story.
