I love shawls in unexpected shapes. This one falls in between a shawl, a wrap and a scarf, meaning you can use it in many ways! The lacy character makes it look lovely over a dress for a party or even a wedding, but will look just as fab around your neck on a chilly autumn morning.

Llamalicious has a leaning triangular shape which gives a nice drape around your neck. The smooth and cosy llama yarn will keep you warm on any occasion! The shawl is worked flat.

The beautiful yet simple cable design is easy to memorise, which makes this perfect social knitting. If you haven’t tried cables before this could be a good place to start.

Note! This shawl will look small on the needles, but the yarn, in combination with the stitch structure, stretches massively with blocking. This will make the final shawl look much lacier than it will while on the needles. If substituting yarn for one that is less stretchy, be aware that you might end up with a smaller version of the shawl.
