This simple shawlette recipe can be customized to your preferred size (or, to use up just the right amount of yarn!). This shawlette is perfect for accessorizing, keeping you cozy when it gets suddenly cold, or protecting your neck in air conditioning. Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, a self-patterning yarn, does all the colorwork for you.
