Festive and fun, this shawl is inspired by strings of holiday lights. It is decorated with slipped stitches and stripes that are broken up with a touch of texture. A band of beautiful lace decorates the bottom border, and the finishing touch is the mini fringe in peppermint colors. With such a fun sampling of patterns, you’ll love every stitch of this shawl. Knit in Bella Cash, this shawl is super soft and has a lovely drape – perfect for wrapping around your shoulders all season!
