Designed especially for that gorgeous single skein of hand-dyed sock yarn that you don’t know what to do with, the Hilgard Avenue Shawlette uses a simple slip stitch pattern to blend the yarn’s runs of color, thus minimizing pooling.

Worked from the top down, a pleated ruffle worked in a simple one-row stitch pattern finishes things off luxuriously.

This shawlette sits on your shoulders comfortably and adds a dramatic flair to your wardrobe. Whether you wear it loose and open or as a fichu held closed by your best pin, it’s sure to become a favorite.

The piece is worked flat, but a circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.

Additional notions: 8 stitch markers (2 of one color; 6 of another) and a tapestry needle.
