This pretty, asymmetric shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) is designed to be worked in two yarn types—one a light fingering yarn and the other a heavy laceweight—to create a sheer/opaque striping effect. Choose matching shades or go with a two-tone pattern. The shawl has a wide angle and long ends for maximum wrapping options. The motifs and instructions are simple to work, making this a good choice for a beginner lace project..
