Description: Cascading hearts set the loving theme of this beautiful shawl design. Lacy and feminine, this three-quarter circular shawl drapes beautifully whether it is hanging over the shoulders or wrapped scarf-style around the neck. This single-skein design features a fun and unique short-row border which adds an eye-catching finish to this lovely garment.

Sock-aholic® Serene is dyed by hand at Knitters Brewing Company using a wonderfully soft 4-ply Luxury Sock Yarn made from 50% FS Alpaca, 30% Fine Merino, and 20% Tencel. Each skein contains 470 yards, and knits at a gauge of 7-9 stitches per inch using size 1-2 needles. This yarn is fabulous for warm yet lightweight garments, and its softness makes it a pleasure to handle and wear.

Washing Instructions: Hand washing in cool water is recommended to prolong the life of any hand-knit or hand-crocheted item. Roll in a towel to remove excess water (do not twist or wring), and lay flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
