Pena is a triangular shawl knitted from the middle back outwards to the edging. The main body is knitted both in Stockinette and in a fun bicolor Slip stitch pattern. A beautiful lace stitch, embellished with beads, has been added for the edging; creating an interesting effect due the opposite nature of the stitches employed.
