Lace goes literary in this triangular shawl, which featuresa motif in the shape of a classic fountain pen nib. Thepattern gets its dimensions from curving lozengespunctuated with eyelets and nupps. After trying severaledging variations, designer Susan Lawrence settled on asimple pattern that accents but doesn’t compete with thestrong curving lines of the basic design.
