A large, triangular shawl, perfect for wearing in multiple ways.
I have long-dreamed of creating a design in this colour combination,
which reminds me of liquorice and lemon sherbet, which in turn reminds me of the Sherbet Fountain treat of my childhood!

This shawl is a fun, fast knit, perfect for adventurous beginners. Worked from the top down, the combination of textured rows keep it interesting as it grows, with the contrast colour adding something special.
