I had one last skein of yarn that Handmaiden gave me at TNNA last year and thought it would be perfect for a one skein shawlette.This yarn is a mix of wool and silk and is quite lovely. It feels great against the skin and has a wonderful drape to it; the perfect thing for a shawl!

This shawlette is constructed from the bottom up. The shawl is reversible; the Lace Edging Pattern is worked on both sides and the body stitch pattern has a purl background, but it looks good from the knit side also. The charts are written with the knit side as the right side. The charts are condensed so be sure to read instructions before beginning the charts. The two edges stitches on each side are worked in Garter Stitch throughout pattern.
