I have updated the original Lin-Lin shawl which was released in 2013. The design itself is the same as the original Lin-Lin. To this enlarged edition I have added DK and fingering weight yarns. The original only used worsted. I have also made it sizeable. It has new charts, more detailed instructions, revised sizing, and a few tweaks to the instructions.
