This striking shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) takes full advantage of the shimmer provided by a luxury yarn blend. Knit from hem to neck in highly embossed patterns, the design is a study in bold contrasts typical of Victorian compositions. Worked in a modern color or with striping through the hem, the final result is a stunning showpiece that’s sure to be noticed. Comprised entirely of easy to work motifs with wrong side rows in simple knit and purl, this project works up quickly for a special holiday gift and also is a good choice for a first shawl project.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
