Yvonne is somewhere between a shawl and a cardigan; the perfect lightweight garment for air conditioning or cool evenings. I have seen this on all body shapes, from 5’ tall 32” chest to 5’ 11 tall 52” chest and it is universally comfortable and flattering. Its simple shape really shows off a gorgeous, drapey yarn.
