Stunning Beginner Lace Wrap Free Pattern

I have been having such a love affair with the Plump DK Yarn from Stunning String. It is such an incredibly soft fiber and so great to work up. I designed this beginner friendly lace shawl for their Learn To Knit Series. It is a great first step into lace or a wonderfully meditative pattern for the most experienced knitters.
