Here’s a shawl/scarf that is just the thing to add a feminine flourish to any outfit. This versatile piece works equally well as a shawl wrapped around the shoulders or as a scarf worn boho style and looped around your neck.

Beautiful and delicate Stockinette stitch leaves are suspended against open garter stitch on one long edge. The body of the shawl is knit in a simple eyelet lace that echoes the openness and keeps the whole piece light and airy.

This is your quintessential shawl/scarf that will take you easily from spring through fall, especially if knit in a season-spanning color, like the Antique Lace shown here. Requires only 2 (gorgeous!) hanks of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light yarn. Ends are tapered for extra flair, but if you want to keep it simpler, just omit the shaping and work this as a rectangle.
