You’ll get a kick out of this engaging and colorful shawl, ironically named for the feeling of listlessness and tedium that it’s sure to banish. Be daring with your color choices or remain comfortably reserved – either way your excitement will grow along with the shawl as you create textured stripes and gently undulating waves.

Worked outward from the top center, it is edged with a perpendicular lace border which is joined as you go and punctuated with playful picots.
