A woolly triangular shawl in a lightweight fabric is a great accessory to have on hand. We like to wear them bunched up around the neck, with volume, like a scarf. The stitch patterns incorporated in this design allow the fabric to be decorative, without being overly lacey. Here yarn and pattern combine to create a warm accessory that is both beautiful and functional.


This shawl begins at the top-center and is worked down towards the outer edge.
