“Annabel Lee Shawl by Deborah Breland”
Description
This shawl design is an homage to Poe and is based on his beautiful musical poem of the same name. The lace pattern is a study in negative space and motion. The solid rectangles represent caskets and the decreases flow in different directions to give the piece the feel of an angry ocean.

Finished Measurements:
Length 72”/183cm
Width: 22”/56cm

As written, the pattern uses 866 yds/792m of fingering weight yarn. Two balls of the suggested yarn is 874 yds, so be mindful of this. If yardage is a concern, pattern can be adjusted in 9"/23cm increments. If you remove a pattern repeat, the shawl is still quite large - 63"/160cm.

The lace panel and border stitches are charted as well as written. The pattern uses a provisional cast-on, a cable cast-on and an applied border. Instructions are included for all of these. The lace pattern is actually fairly easy to work, and will be fun, almost mindless knitting for experienced lace knitters.
