This sideways asymmetrical shawl is worked with an allover lace pattern creating interest and texture. Use a luxurious sport-weight yarn as suggested here. Or, a fingering or sock yarn could also work well. A rich colour like this deep purple will create a beautiful and luxurious shawl for any occasion. One skein of Madelinetosh Pashmina is used here (shown in Duchess).
