Simply Sweet Shawl
This pretty little shawl features a pop of accent color separating the garter stitch body from the border. Little bow ties form the border into a scalloped edge with no tricky knitting required! If you do not have a few yards of accent color in your stash, this shawl looks just as sweet with accents worked in the main color; just remember to hold out that yardage.
Pattern is 3 pages long and is suitable for a knitter who can knit, purl, pick up stitches along an edge, and keep track of a 4 row repeat. The specific increases used and the i-cord ties are explained in the directions. As with all my patterns, it has been test knit and professionally tech edited to be clear and free of errors.
