Inspired by @bakewell_hearts and the trip I am planning to Great Britain next summer, I created this shawl for Melanie.

It started out as just a shawl I could design and send to her.  It then turned into a pattern to share with the #spin15aday group on Instagram.

I want to thank @absentherose and @mondaybread for taking on the project as test knitters and their wonderful feedback.  What a great way to get to know other folks on a social media platform.

Please post on Instagram with #spin15aday and #lincolnroad when you create this shawl.  It would be great to be able to see what everyone has made.

  1. Thank you. Live it, trying to figure out how to make deeper and wider

    More lace repeats will take care of length.
    Hints on making it 16 inches deep?
