I love quick projects. With so much to do a quick and easy project helps keep my interest and allows me to try various types of yarns. I thought of this pattern and searched through my stash to find this delightful Cascade yarn that was perfect.

The problem—I only had 2 balls. This project is a one or two ball project and depending on how wide you want it you could each go to three balls. I ended up using just one. The yarn is a light and airy wool that holds the shape of the lace just right. The tight lines are created by changing the needle size which adds a sweet design.

Knit in any type of yarn and any length to make this shawl yours!
