When packing for a wedding recently, I realized I did not have a single shawl to wear to such an occasion. Shawls I have in plenty. But the shawls I wear are wooly, everyday shawls. I needed a graceful, fancy shawl that was wedding appropriate. So became this shawl. It is named for my all time favorite song by Stevie Wonder, the song that never fails to get me up on the dance floor.

Sir Duke is knit from the top down, worked in stockinette stitch for most of the way until the lace border. Its shape is a subtle crescent, so it snuggles the shoulders and doesn’t slip off.
