I was looking for a lace pattern that a guy could wear when I flipped through Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle and saw the Box Lace Shawl and thought that would be a perfect pattern for a guy, simple and elegant. I changed the guage to tighten it up but this is how it turned out. It's in Malabrigo Sock and sorry I lost the color name and number but it's a dark plum with lime green accents, it was knit with #3 needles. This is for a freind for Christmas to go with his loden green Burbury coat. I hope he likes it.
