Delicate lace melds beautifully, perfectly, with the supple texture of garter stitch in this airy, lightweight shawl. The asymmetrical shaping is simple, yet engaging, while the picot-bind off ensures the most finished look. Even on the most bitter of winter mornings, the silky lace comforts and delights.
