The perfect shawlette for Autumn! Pipsqueak is a simple short-row shape, bordered by adorable fruity colourwork, a hint of lace, and a ruffled edging that’s as sweet as apple pie. The pattern is worked in dainty 4-ply but written to keep purling to a minimum. The result is eye catching and much simpler than it looks.
