Inspired by the work of influential designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, this rectangular shawl is worked in two pieces, then grafted together at the centre; a border is picked up along the entire edge and worked in the round, and finally a lace edging is knitted on perpendicularly.

The pattern includes charts and also full written instructions.
