Description

This light, airy shawl in three sizes (petite/medium/tall) features a delicate, textured stitch pattern that works up well in laceweight yarns. Concentrated increases and decreases within the motif contribute to its dramatic shaping and self-scalloping lines, which are emphasized here by striping with contrasting colors. The shawl is worked in one piece and may be knit with a single colorway or gradient yarn if desired.
