This is a beautifully drapey shawl, knit from the bottom up. It's slightly curved shape is achieved through short rows in the stockinette section.
After finishing, the top curls downward slightly to create a rolled neckline.
If you want to make a warm shawl or just a light summer stole, just find the right yarn and off you go! This shawl can be knit in anything from fingering to lace. Don't be afraid to experiment with your yarn and needles! I knit the lace version in larger needles than the fingering and loved the effect!
The short row section is worked in German Short Rows with a clear written descriptions. The bottom lace border is worked from charts.
The name doesn't mean that the lace has to sit in your lap! I called it after the one area of Maths that I could never get my head around The Laplace Transform - and decided to "transform" Laplace into something beautiful!
