Inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley, the Valley Yarns Shenandoah Valley Shawl has mountains at each end and a valley in the center. This large shawl is perfect for those lovely summer evenings when you want just a little warmth. The ends of the shawl feature triangles of alternating lace and cable patterns. The cable rows become Stockinette stitch in the center, bordered by the same eyelet lace pattern. Knit in wonderfully soft and drapey 2/14 Alpaca Silk.
