This narrow, textured shawl knits up quickly in hearty Heirloom worsted weight wool. With its clever stitches, the Imposter’s Shawl mimics woven and crochet work, but it is truly knitted from start to finish. The shawl uses a unique stitch to make the scalloped edge reminiscent of crochet work.

The 100% US raised, milled and hand-dyed Romney yarn gives definition and sheen to the stitch work. It is a sensible, down-to-earth shawl that is easy to wear.

This shawl is written in just one size, but it is easy as pie to make alternate sizes if you’d like. The Imposter’s Shawl measures 64” wide and 17” deep.
