A simple and easy-to-work knitted garter stitch body shines when edged with an intricate crocheted lace edging. Work it in a single yarn, or work the edging in a contrasting color. This shawl shines no matter what fiber you make it in. The 2-color version is worked in a silk/linen blend and the single color version is a wool blend.
