Smaller than a shawl but larger than a scarf, the vibrant Aesthete Shawlette is the perfect size for those in-between spring days. Starting at one narrow end with simple seed stitch, the shawlette grows more intricate as it expands, with two detailed borders of intertwining twisted stitches that gradually merge into seed stitch at the other narrow end.
