A fresh and modern lace shawl, Southern Shawl is a stylish, asymmetrical triangle with a gorgeous detailed border and fantastic drape.

Feminine yet unfussy, Southern Shawl uses just one skein of treasured fingering yarn.

Drape it across your shoulders or wrap it around your neck to keep warm.

The striped stockinette body is relaxing and enjoyable to knit and falls with soft ripples when worn.

The lace is a simple combination of familiar stitches which creates a stunning finish.

Includes charted and written instructions and is ideal for a newish knitter wanting to expand their skills.
