Shale Beach is a triangular shawl knit from the top down in three panels. With its straightforward design, this shawl lends itself to being a great project for novice lace knitters.

To work this pattern, you will need to know:

  • Knit and purl stitches
  • Slip stitches
  • Increase and decrease stitches – YO, M1L, M1R, K2TOG, SSK, SL1 K2TOG PSSO
  • Twisted stitches – KTBL
  • Picking up stitches


Our sample was knit double-stranded with approximately 1,320 yds (1,206 m) of luscious, Knit Picks Shimmer lace weight yarn to take advantage of the fiber content (70% Baby Alpaca, 30% Silk) and the splendid colorway, Blue Glass.

However, this pattern is equally suited to fingering weight yarn knit with a single strand. You will need approximately 660 yds (603 m) of fingering weight yarn.
