A ribbon of zigzag lace with a yarnover selvedge forms the foundation for this pretty triangular shawl. Stitches picked up from the yarnovers take a few steadying ridges of garter stitch while decreases are established at the edges and spine, then begin to intermingle in a traditional two-sided lace pattern before relaxing into an ever-diminishing field of garter.

This pattern has been revised May 29, 2012 to include written instructions to the charts. I have also updated the pattern with new and improved charts and updated the instructions for clarity. I hope you enjoy this new version of the Calais Shawl Pattern :)
Orchid Thief pattern by Ysolda Teague
Three petals bloom from the centre top edge, their points organically growing into the three spines of yarn over increases. This unusual increase pattern creates the perfect shape for staying in place around your shoulders. The petals along the edge are grouped into threes, echoing the centre and forming deep scallops.
A simple bud lace pattern makes up the body of this little shawl. The pattern flows into a deep lily-of-the-valley border with a peaked edging.

The shawl is worked in a light-as-a-feather laceweight alpaca that shows every detail of the intricate patterning.
