Esther, a lacy V-shaped shawl, is the perfect accessory to cover bare shoulders on a breezy summer evening.
It is knitted in different directions. The easy garter stitch lace border is worked first side to side. Then stitches are picked up to work the body bottom up. Its oval shape helps to stay on the shoulders.
