Cirkels by La Visch Designs. The bold circle (“cirkel” in Dutch) featured in the border inspired the Cirkels shawl design. This wonderful eye catching lace reminds me of the bridges of Paris, crossing the Seine. Knit Cirkels sideways from tip to tip. Increases/decreases are worked one stitch every other row, creating a shallow triangle. The lace border features triple yarn overs, giving it its distinct circles. Because the border is knit at the same time as the body of the shawl, the time needed for finishing is minimal.
