This shawlette is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. A semi-solid yarn in your favorite color combined with the geometric lace in this pattern and you will be turning some heads. Drape it around your shoulders and pin with a pretty shawl pin or wrap around your neck like a kerchief. And, why not some mitts to match the shawl? I don’t know about you, but as a knitter, I am rarely wearing coordinating accessories. I have been seen wearing a brightly-colored striped scarf, a pastel hat and pretty Fair Isle mittens all at the same time. So, if you have already worked up the Willoughby shawl, grab another skein of yarn and whip up these mitts. Sometimes, it’s nice to match.
