Flowers and Frills Shoulder Shawl
Pay special attention to the instructions on how to pick up the stitches for the border, and you’ll have smooth sailing. Don’t be intimidated by the fact that the pattern looks intricate. It’s an easy-to-memorize pattern that you’ll find fun with just the right amount of challenge. Like most lace knitting, blocking this one to open up the lacework is the magic touch (along with the “magic” border!)
If you knit this, please let me see the photo of your FO :D
