Bǎoshí

Bǎoshí means “precious stone” in Chinese, a fitting name for the diamond-like lace pattern. This shawl is worked from the bottom up, making it easily customizable to any size you prefer.

Here are some detail shots:

What I love about the lace pattern is the movement. I know it doesn’t look like it, but the decreases move stitches back and forth.

Here I hitched the shawl up higher, and it looks really nice as a small shawl.

As always, there are written and charted directions, plus information on how to get the most out of one skein.
