A deeply-textured triangle shawl in three sizes (petite/medium/tall) to knit from neck to hem in a rich yarn blend. The body is worked in a busy but simple eyelet pattern while the otherwise solid garter stitch hem features windows of bold lace medallions. The resulting play of pattern and light provides an intriguing accent to wear near the face and neck.
