Slow Dance is an evolving design with a set of frisky quick steps and graceful slow steps which can be worked together in any number of ways.

A quick look through the test knits of this shawl will show a big variety in the way the two sections can be put together.

Heart shaped or angel wing shaped, it stays put on your shoulders.

Highly adaptable to yardage and yarn weight.

Much simpler than it looks, it invites the knitter to find their own rhythm and set their own pace.

Not officially beaded, but beads can be added (lots of them, if you like!)

Please note the centre line of this shawl has been redesigned since knitting my sample and is now a narrow single line of holes rather than the wider double yo with a line of knit sts down the centre.

Fully written and charted, with pattern rows worked on the RS only.
