Pesto is a garter stitch shawl with lace border knit in one piece from end to end. It can be knit with one skein of sock yarn. The size of the shawl can be customized depending on the amount of yarn you have so it is the perfect pattern for making the most of a special skein of yarn! Instructions on how to do this are included.

Both charted and full written instructions are included.

Yarn Requirements: approx 420 yards of fingering weight yarn

Gauge
