Lockleys is a wonderful way to use up single skeins of sport weight yarn, and knits up quickly for instant pattern gratification. When worn it looks just like a cozy triangular shawl, but actually involves a clever cowl shape in the construction. Adding a fringe is optional, but highly recommended for that stand-out finishing touch!
