Alivia is a unique, triangular shawl worked from the bottom point to the upper edge. The beautiful lace border remains the focal point of the shawl and with two center stitch options, it can be worn either formally or casually. Modifying for lesser or greater yardage, or a different weight of yarn, is as easy as repeating the second chart fewer or more times.

Instructions are provided in both row by row written instruction and chart form.
