La vie est belle (Life is Beautiful) is a top-down crescent-shaped shawl that beautifully blends elegant lace stitches to create a captivatingly engaging knit.
Should a larger shawl be desired, as lace-weight skeins can vary in yardage, notes for a larger shawl have been provided.
Worked flat, La vie est belle contains written directions and charts. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you with your rows and stitch counts. Yardage for each section is given should you wish to turn this into a scrappy project!
