This is a shawl I created and dedicated to my sister who is the best sister anyone could ever have and who I miss
terribly because we are much too far apart. Elegant, just as my sister, JudyB is a simple crescent shaped shawl knit with silk and cashmere to give it drape and a touch of
luxury wrapped around your shoulders. She is knit in
garter stitch with lace and reversible cables using short rows to give her that unique shape.

Approximately 17.5“/95 cm high and 51“/130 cm wide. The wingspan is about 67”/170 cm when pulled straight.
