Feminine yet unfussy, Southern is a beautiful, asymmetric triangle with a striking lace border and fantastic drape that’s perfect for dressing up for special occasions or simply adding some va-va-voom to a casual outfit.

Designed with two sizes, to use one or two skeins of treasured fingering yarn, Southern is delicious draped across your shoulders (even secured with a sparkly shawl pin!) or snuggled around your neck to keep warm.

Her striped stockinette/reverse stockinette body is relaxing and enjoyable to knit, falling with soft ripples when worn.

The lace is a simple combination of familiar stitches, creating a stunning finish.

Including both charted and written instructions, Southern is ideal for experienced knitters and new shawl knitters wanting to expand their skills.
