This is a shawl that surely even Cinderella would have wanted to wear. Yet, it was given to her step-sister Anastasia.

The shawl is knit in lightweight alpaca wool, lending it softness without heaviness. Several beads are woven into the front of the shawl to provide not only a hint of shimmer but also a lovely drape.

The simple design allows the shawl to be serviceable for everyday wear. Take it from home to work to out on the town. The simple design also equates to an easy yet entertaining knit.
