Elinya is a large, cosy, striped shawl. squishy garter stitch makes this a snuggly winter accessory, and the decorative picot border along the curved edge gives it a delicate flair. This shawl is long and wide, narrowing to a curved point at each end, making it perfect for draping over shoulders or wrapping several times around your neck. Elinya is worked entirely in knit stitch, making the garment a great beginner’s project or excellent TV knitting.
