Wrap yourself up in this luxurious shawl for instant warmth and elegance. The body of the shawl features graceful rows of eyelets highlighting the top-down triangular construction. An edging of delicate lace looks lovely whether the shawl is worn traditionally around your shoulders or tossed casually around your neck. Both the beginning and the edging are shown in stitch diagrams in addition to written out.
