A lacey shawl that is as practical as it is glamorous.
Drape it over your shoulders as the perfect compliment to your evening wear, or wear it casually wrapped around your neck for day-to-day warmth.

Choose two contrasting skeins of your favourite fingering weight yarn.
The Oyster Shawl is knit from the top down, forming an elongated crescent shape. Written instructions are provided for the eyelet body section, then choose from charted or written instructions for the circle lace edging.
