At virtually any time of year, a small scarf-sized shawl can be a lifesaver. Shawls can dress up an outfit, brighten a dull day with a flash of colour, and provide an extra bit of warmth under the collar during chilly, transitional seasons. This one uses just a single 100g skein of fingering weight yarn, and the colour possibilities are endless! Adventurous knitters new to lace will find this approachable, and experienced knitters will have a finished object in no time. Choose your favourite single skein and ‘Let’s go!’
Instructions include charts for lace motifs.
