A versatile, fine gauge square shawl in two sizes (petite/tall), inspired by the motifs seen on printed bandanas. In fact, while this piece makes a beautiful accessory, it may also be put to work in the home as a table accent or light summer throw. This easy-to-work piece is comprised of simple eyelet motifs with alternate rounds worked entirely in knit—it makes excellent knitting for spectator sports, the beach, or a first-time lace shawl project.
