A lightweight semicircular shawl worked from the top down. It’s airy and lacy, but there are lots of plain knitting rows, making this a good project for the ambitious beginner-lace knitter, or for the experienced lace knitter looking for relaxing project.

I’ve kept the construction as simple as possible to make this accessible to different experience levels. The edge is a simple garter stitch, and the border ends with an easy stretchy bind off. You could of course, modify the construction with more elaborate edging and a knitted-on border. I have posted a tutorial for how to make a garter stitch tab.
