The Lucilla Drake 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 is created with stacked hearts. They end with eyelets which create a scalloped bottom edge. The entire shawl is charted. It can be made larger easily by repeating Charts 3 and 4 any number of times before completing the final chart for the border.
The name Lucilla Drake is a character from Agatha Christie's Sparkling Cyanide. The detective story has two versions, one a short story and the other a novel. The novel features Colonel Race as the detective while the short story uses the more well known Poirot. The novel uses the basics of the short story, but changes a number of details as Christie rewrote her own work.
